Mata Ashita is a space for Japanese Canadian creatives to share their craft, receive guidance, and connect with one another.
On the first Saturday of every month, we meet via Zoom for a 30 minute long Q&A sessions with celebrated Japanese Canadian writers, followed by an hour long workshop based on their work.
We hope that these workshops will help us engage in meaningful conversations around creativity, connection, and mental health.
Mata Ashita means see you tomorrow, and for us, that means a promise to take care of ourselves and each other during this difficult time. Japanese Canadian writing has long been a medium through which our community has found incredible power and meaning, and we hope to continue this tradition with writers new and old.
