EVENT: "ARTIST FROM THE HEART: Creativity, Celebration and Compassionate Action for Japan Disaster Relief" PRESS RELEASE: When San Francisco was hit by the 1906 Earthquake, one nation came to aide the devastated city surpassing all other nation's financial contributions: it was the generosity of Japan. Since that time, San Franciscan's have re-built their city upon a reputation as a place with "heart"... and now 105 year later, with the horrific events that have struck Japan - we now, the people of the San Francisco Bay Area can express our gratitude with artistic sincerity and generosity to aide the Japanese People. On Saturday, May 21 from 5pm-10pm, there will an evening of cultural arts and compassion to both honor Month of May's Asian Heritage Celebration and to raise monies for Northern Japan Earthquake Relief Fund. Sponsored by Eth-Noh-Tec kinetic story theater and the Asian Pacific Island Cultural Center, this event will take place at Nihonmachi Terrace (1615 Sutter Street) Japan Town, San Francisco. It will be a gathering of poetry, music, storytelling, visual arts & crafts on a theme of "Salon!
