Event Details

ART IS...Our Call For Peace is where writer Kao Kalia Yang, traditional song poet Bee Yang, spoken word artist Kevin Yang, and visual artist Xee Reiter will come together on a historic evening that transcends generations and artistic forms to celebrate Hmong art in America. They send a message to the world: If there are good things that emerge from wars at all, then it is us, those who've survived to dream of more peaceful possibilities.

Minnesota is a haven for artists - some of them well-known, others we still need to meet. That's why TPT launched ART IS..., a multi-media and events series aimed at bringing visibility to emerging and established artists in new ways. Watch their stories here, get inspired to make something yourself and snag some tickets to these live events.
