Community Cares
Community Cares – All Together Now

November 14, 2023
6:30pm-8:30pm EST

Community Cares: All Together Now is KPB’s bi-annual virtual gala, honoring KPB Board Member Tiffany Vega-Gibson and Theater Advocate Arnaldo J. López, with Special Guests Raquel Almazan (Board President, IndieSpace) and Maria Lopez de Leon (National Artistic Advisory Council, NEA).

Facilitated as a stakeholder meeting between KPB artists, community partners, staff, Board, and funders, Community Cares is an opportunity for our community to name the pressing needs we wish to tackle through the work of Kyoung’s Pacific Beat. We hope our community will rally once more to radically imagine our collective future.
