Meet @leslieishii (one of fave artists and activists ever) a featured #storyteller in Friday’s #talkingwhilefemale#storytellingsessions episode. ( Tix in bio ) • Leslie Ishii (Director) is an artist, a cultural community organizer, and a social justice warrior for people in theatre and the arts and culture sector. Grateful for an acting career in Asian American, ethnic-specific/multicultural, regional theatres, on Broadway and on-camera, Leslie’s passion for directing has also afforded her the opportunity to work deep in community and at many theatres and theatre programs that feature multiracial casts and artists of color.
(Arts Education) Leslie has developed actor training and directing methods for artists of color based in liberation theory as a response to Western/Eastern European conservatory training. She continues to teach and collaborate with an equity/diversity/inclusion imperative and guest teaches at universities, colleges, and within theatre education programs.
(Social Justice Leadership & Organizing) Events Produced: 5th and 6th National Asian American Theater Conference & Festival, at @osfashland and @theatreschooldepaul respectively, where she also brought individual artists and theatres of color together at both #ConFests to foster strategies for mutual sustainability; 1st and 2nd Freedom and Focus International Fitzmaurice Voicework® Conferences in Spain and Canada. Leslie has been a featured presenter at VASTA conferences in Mexico, Spain, and Austria; and co-facilitated the launch of @tcg_gram Equity/Diversity/Inclusion Institute and is proud to be on the core faculty of #artequity . • This #twf is a #newyearnewyou special episode: NOW OR NEVER and launches season 2 of the series.

Proud to share our newest display at Guisados #BoyleHeights by the talented kids of @paralosninosorg. A non profit organization that provides education and support to over 6,000 of L.A.’s children, youth, and families each year.
All pieces on display were created by students in grades TK-8th as part of an end of year assignment. Each grade works together to develop pieces that express their research in creative ways that reinforce their understanding, while building creativity and motor skills.
We are so proud to share this display through June and invite you to stop by see their work and grab a taco while you’re at it!
Y'all bumping that 'Mi Vida Nueva' off the new album? It's a special song to me because writing that track made me face certain truths in my life and find peace in moving on. 🌵
Our goal was to capture that feeling in visual form and it looks like the new music video is ready 🙏 Directed by @moses_israel@bandwidthbrothers Song Produced by @rok3m
I'll be premiering it exclusively to the folks in attendance tomorrow at @theblvdbh during my Peyote at the Blvd show, tickets available, link in my bio. Hope to see you there 🙏🌵 #EOTR#eotrnetwork#vivamescal#boyleheights
