MORE ABOUT THE GENKI SPARK

 

We're Passionate about Sisterhood: 
"With my sisters, I can do anything!"

We're Passionate about Community: 
"I believe laughter can tear down any wall"

We're Passionate about Leadership:  
"I believe that one word, one action, one person can make a difference"

 

The idea for The Genki Spark was partially born of conversations local Asian women were having about the need for powerful, visible role models and a supportive, creative space for Asian women of all ages. We aim to build community and provide support for Asian women to explore their identities so that she may proudly claim herself while advocating for the respect of others.

Taiko drumming is an art form rooted in Japan. We stand proud on the shoulders of the early Japanese and Asian American activists of the '60s and '70s who founded some of the first taiko groups in North America. These early pioneers were fighting for civil rights and were pivotal in the development of Asian American studies programs. These activists understood the power of art and social change.

Big, loud, and compelling, our performances are probably what most people associate with The Genki Spark, but aside from playing taiko we deliberately share personal stories of empowerment in order to inspire others to claim space and fully share themselves


We believe in equality, fairness, collaboration, and unity. We often partner with community and educational organizations working towards social justice or the empowerment of others to offer workshops, facilitate discussions, conduct panel presentations, and speak out on issues we care about.
