with Jody Hojin Kimmel, Sensei and Mn. Rakusan Ricci

May 21, 2022

For Ango participants: Join us for one evening per month during the three-month training period, Ango, to share our emergent tales with creative audience feedback and /or create one long tale together as process practice. This will be a good time to address any questions arising in your work and share the works in process. A copy of the art practice assignment is attached.

Let us circle around!
