341 FSN is a collaborative and experimental space designed to explore community control and self-determination in Little Tokyo and First Street North. The space is owned and operated by Little Tokyo Service Center (LTSC), whose mission is to “provide a comprehensive array of social welfare and community development services to assist low income individuals and other persons in need, contribute to community revitalization and cultural preservation in Little Tokyo.” Changing Tides is a initiative of LTSC committed to de-stigmatizing mental health within the Asian American community. Throughout their less-than-a-year span of existence, they have focused much of their time on emphasizing the importance of art as a means of self-expression, catharsis, and, ultimately, engaging the community in open discussions about mental illness.
During the month of February, LTSC, working with the Japanese American National Museum, will support 341 FSN’s experimental community storefront with Changing Tides. Changing Tides will be creating a Mental Health Pop-Up exhibit that will feature art, created by Nikkei artists, that reflects or was inspired by mental health.
Admission to the pop-up is free!
