The afternoon features a reprise of Chanel Matsunami Govreau’s performance “Hapa Bruthas,” an exploration of Hapa male and Asian male sexuality, brotherhood, and the effects of interracial dating in Asian American communities from a mixed-Asian woman’s perspective.

All drawings created by the audience will be exhibited on site for the event, then taken home by the artists. Please bring your own drawing supplies.
