TAP (The Artists’ Platform) and F.A.C.E. (Faith and Community Empowerment) come together on April 28 at the Aratani Theatre in Little Tokyo to present The Friendship Concert III. It is to commemorate the 26th Anniversary of the Los Angeles Riots by promoting themes of tolerance, diversity, and love. This special concert strives to showcase an eclectic array of artistic talents from Los Angeles’ diverse communities.
Along with a fabulous show filled with diverse local talent, Junior High and High School students entered a competition through poetry and works of visual art as part of their studies learning and reflecting about the tragic and historical event. This year, Young Ok Kim Academy and Flintridge Preparatory School are among theparticipating schools. Student submissions will be considered for recognition and cash awards and selected visual entries will be included in the concert.
