TENDER (n.): A Person Who Takes Charge Reception for the Vietnamese Community + Sunday Streets

Sunday, May 6th is a happening day in the Tenderloin! Sunday Streets is happening throughout the neighborhood from 11am to 4pm. Whole blocks of the TL will be car-free, transforming the typically congested streets into a temporary open space. An array of restaurants, independent businesses, and nonprofits will be participating--stroll by the Tenderloin Museum's table on Ellis Street and say hello! 

That same afternoon, the Tenderloin Museum and Flyaway Productions invite the Vietnamese community to the Museum on May 6th to learn about TENDER (n.): a person who takes charge. This site specific public art performance will take place on the outdoor walls of the Cadillac Hotel and will features stories of outcast activism in the neighborhood over the last 100 years, including stories of Vietnamese people’s arrival in the neighborhood and efforts to thrive here. The shows will take place June 7-16, 2018 on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays.

As the director of TENDER, choreographer Jo Kreiter will speak about her experiences making community responsive public art. Composer Vân-Ánh Võ will talk about making the music for this project, and will share some of that music at the reception.
