Voices upon the Tradewinds


about the show

From June 26-28, Tradewind Arts Asian American Artists will welcome Eth-Noh-Tec Kinetic Story Theatre and ten of the world's top English Language Asian and Asian American storytellers to Kansas City for Voices Upon the Tradewinds, an Asian-Pacific American Storytelling Summit to engage in professional development, exploring community connections to storytelling, and inspiring conversations to catalyze the voices of our communities.


We’ll build on the success of the previous and initial gathering hosted by Eth-Noh-Tec at their home base in San Fransisco in 2014 by connecting with the local community in workshops with several performance styles, "Fishbowl" circle conversations to spark inclusive and engaging discussion, along with a culminating "Concert" of stories and tellers.

Meet the storytellers of the Asian Pacific Diaspora.
