“Lunch & Learn” Series with Speaker Karen Nagano
October 11, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
We’re kicking off the 2018/2019 “Lunch & Learn” series today with featured speaker Karen Nagano, a Japanese American, artist, poet, writer, social activist, and healer, who lives and works in the Napa Valley. Karen will speak about her life and being a victim of sexual assault and how she uses art to overcome that experience.
In both her visual and literary work Karen gives expression to her Japanese cultural inheritance and her experience as a dual-culture woman. In her work, she addresses issues of sexism, racism, female empowerment and social justice, all the while maintaining a highly developed visual aesthetic and buoyant sense of creative play.
