Big announcement!! Introducing the TN Box, a limited edition care package of items created and curated by Tuesday Night Project family, full of hug vibes!

July is our annual fundraising month and during that time we’re able to connect with our community beyond our normal programming. As we continue to monitor our ability to host a Tuesday Night Cafe season safely, we decided to try something new. This year, our team carefully handpicked items for our care package featuring items from Asian American artists, Tuesday Night Project staff, and community members of LA’s Little Tokyo.

This is a donate-what-you-want program, with the lowest level ($35) subsidized and every level above contributing to our general fund. We’ll be detailing each item in our social in the following weeks!

🎁 Available only for the month of July! Support TNP and get this parcel of hug vibes directly to your door here: https://tuesdaynightproject.org/tnbox

Hello everyone! I work with Sean Miura at BuzzFeed, and we're planning a holiday market/craft fair for employees on December 13th. I've seen so many awesome artists with tables at TNC over the years, so I thought I'd reach out here to see if anyone would be interested in having a table at our event. Please DM me!
