ORIGINAL MURAL: AUDREY CHAN

Hey, Happy May!

If all goes well, our SALA events will hopefully begin to take place in real life, live and direct! For now, though, we still gotta play it safe, and so our virtual event returns on Zoom this coming Saturday, May 8th at 8:30pm.

It’s another stellar lineup of activists, visual artists, poets, thespians, musicians, and deejays coming together–as we have during much of the pandemic–to elevate your spirits while you socialize from home.

This month, our featured artists celebrate Mothers’ Day, International Workers’ Day, and Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month, so invite those mamas out there to Zoom in!

  • JOLLENE LEVID (AF3IRM), Opening Remarks
  • AUDREY CHAN, Visual Art
  • IRIS DE ANDA, Poetry
  • SESSHU FOSTER & ARTURO ROMO, Fiction
  • PATTY CACHAPERO, Solo Performance
  • NANCY SANCHEZ, Live Musical Performance
  • GLENN RED & REYES, Resident Deejays

Plus, be sure to move that furniture and stick around for the dance party!

As always, it’s a FREE event…just visit our Facebook event page to grab the Zoom meeting link. Virtual ‘doors’ open at 8pm; full program beins at 8:30pm. See you on Saturday night in your salas!
