Join us under the Mid-Autumn moon for Magic Mooncakes, Poetry, and Sounds, as we harvest as a community at Ross Alley!
Presented and curated by 41 Ross Artist-in-Residence Connie Zheng, the Mooncake Harvest Party celebrates the release of Magic Mooncakes, a collection of mooncakes made in collaboration with Chinatown SRO (Single Room Occupancy) Residents from Chinatown Community Development Center and the artist for the Mid-Autumn Moon Festival!
Partnering up with beloved Chinatown bakeries, Yummy Bakery and Garden Bakery, each mooncake design draws inspiration from the Chinatown Residents’ current joys in life, the people they love, and the dreams and hopes they carry for the future. During a two-week workshop, Connie intimately worked with residents to draft out their ideas and drawings to collectively combine them into two designs, expanding their creativity.
During the party, there will be literary performances by poets Maw Shein Win, Shelley Wong, Ploi Pirapokin, Leena Joshi, and Jennifer S. Cheng and a special DJ set by Red Beans, presented in collaboration with Fault Radio.
