A Cultural Celebration of Kansas City’s Vietnamese Community
All Library locations will close at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, December 24 and remain closed on Thursday, December 25 in observance of the Christmas holiday.
Join Kansas City writer Rhiannon Ross for an afternoon of Vietnamese poetry, performance art, live and recorded music, video, fashion, dance, and visual art, featuring Vi Tran, performance artist and musician, and Phong Nguyen, poet and assistant professor of English at the University of Central Missouri. Following the presentations, sample a variety of Vietnamese cuisine. The program and post-event reception is presented by the Vox Narro project that pairs writers with immigrant communities to give voice to the voiceless.
Supported by the Rocket Grants program, which is funded by the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and administered by the Charlotte Street Foundation and the Spencer Museum of Art to support innovative, public-oriented work in nontraditional spaces.
