Bringing LA's Chinatown and Little Tokyo together through Takachizu by Bear Guerra

On January 14th, we'll be joining a group of artists, storytellers and activists to host Takachizu: Staying Home.

The gathering in English, Cantonese and Japanese will feature photos, multimedia, food, conversation and personal stories about what it means to make a home in a big city like LA--and what it takes to stay there.

To listen/see our stories from Little Tokyo and Chinatown visit our Going Gray in L.A. website.

The new issue of American Ethnologist (AE) is out with an article by our friend and collaborator Michael Cepek ("There Might Be Blood: Oil, Humility, and the Cosmopolitics of a Cofán Petro-Being") and a beautiful cover by Bear Guerra. The portrait of Alejandro Criollo was taken in the Cofán village of Dureno, Ecuador, earlier this year.

(In)Visible Project will be showing at Cal State University, San Marcos by Bear Guerra

Bear's (In)Visible Project will be on display in the main library at Cal State University, San Marcos, through the end of the year. This is the first time the project has been shown in almost five years.

It will serve as a jumping-off point for some discussions on campus around student homelessness in the CSU system. One in 10 California State University students have experienced, are currently experiencing, or are on the verge of experiencing homelessness.
