We are currently seeking sponsorship for the July 2011 festival. Contributions at all levels will help fund artist installations, student exhibits, and live events such as symposiums and film screenings which will all be provided free of charge to the public. We hope you will join us in bringing this first time event to life in the streets of Little Tokyo!
