La Cocina’s “Voices from the Kitchen” on YouTube
Voices From the Kitchen | A twice-yearly experiential storytelling project featuring the voices of talented storytellers, writers, activists and thought leaders. The performances are inspired by a chosen theme — “Choices” — told through the lens of food. Proceeds benefit La Cocina’s incubator program, which cultivates low-income women, talented food entrepreneurs.
In light of Covid, this stage production will be broadcasted for the first time as a virtual show, making it accessible to communities nationwide and beyond. It will premiere at 5:30 PM (PT)/ 8:30 PM (ET) on October 29, 2020, on YouTube. Tickets are FREE, but you must register.
Theme: Choices | 2020 has presented us with an almost endless series of choices, while sometimes simultaneously leaving us feeling there are few viable options. This production captures inspiring and personal narratives from 8 storytellers and 2 film shorts that speak to this unique time.
The Line Up | Lauren Whitehead | Jia Tolentino | Aileen Suzara, LC Entrepreneur | Noah Cho | Mayukh Sen | Jennifer 8. Lee | Chris Colin | Nic Jay Aulston | Geetika Agrawal, LC Program Director | Fernay McPherson, LC Entrepreneur
