this event is connected to “seeds of our grandmothers’ dreams” an exhibition at 341 FSN.

“seeds of our grandmothers’ dreams” re-imagines a world blossoming with the unbroken yume our nikkei elders carried across the pacific: before they were forced into american concentration camps.

on october 14 - 28, japanese american women speak (JAWS) will exhibit their art and invite community to decolonize their dreams through a series of storytelling workshops at 341 FSN, 341 E. 1st St., los angeles. “seeds of our grandmothers’ dreams” activates the thriving future of little tokyo—an international community rooted over generations—through a galaxy of intergenerational artists dreaming above ground.

The exhibition is part of an effort by little tokyo service center to help save little tokyo and keep our neighborhood within our own community.
