In the coming decades, Los Angeles is going to look a lot grayer. A County’s senior population will doubl in the next 15 year. ousing, health care and the job market will have to adapt to a population that is working and living longer in a city built for the young.
On Sunday, April 9th, 2017, join us at Los Angeles' Japanese American National Museum for a live conversation and exhibit documenting an 18-mile avenue stretch of Broadway, cutting through the working class heart of the city; from Lincoln Heights, into Chinatown, through Downtown, and on to South LA.
Our year-long multimedia collaboration with KCRW Public Radio, Going Gray in LA, continues this month with new stories about senior hunger, about Little Tokyo as a great example for aging in place, and about a man whose life changed when Fidel Castro came to power in 1959. Thank you to the Eisner Foundation for the support.
On January 14th, we'll be joining a group of artists, storytellers and activists to host Takachizu: Staying Home.
The gathering in English, Cantonese and Japanese will feature photos, multimedia, food, conversation and personal stories about what it means to make a home in a big city like LA--and what it takes to stay there.
