The Venice-West LA Chapter and Camp Musubi invite you to a free youth and family workshop on Sunday, August 27 from 1:00PM to 3:30PM at the Venice Japanese Community Center. This free event is open to all ages in exploring Japanese American heritage through fun hands-on activities.
Activities will include musubi making, art projects, and learning about local Japanese American community through the Aloha to the Neighborhood mural at the old Aloha Grocery on Centinela. Participants will also learn about origami cranes and take part in a greater community project to fold 1000 cranes.
The cranes will later be presented to the local Muslim community on Sunday, September 10th as a gift of friendship and solidarity against EO 13769 and racial bigotry of Muslim Americans. The public program will take place at the Venice Japanese American Venice Memorial Marker on the corner of Venice and Lincoln Boulevard. The site was a WWII incarceration camp pick up site for Japanese Americans from Venice, Santa Monica and Malibu.
