  • Keynote: A Storyteller's Journey

    Our speaker, Brenda Wong-Aoki, is the first nationally recognized Asian American storyteller in the U.S. An internationally known writer, performer and recording artist, her stories draw from Kabuki legend, her rich heritage and deep roots in San Francisco's Japanese and Chinese communities and her own life experience. She has created commissioned work for the Japan Foundation, the Rockefeller Foundation, the Asian Arts Council, the U.S. Congress, the NEA and, most recently, the Hewlett 50 Commission 2018. Her stories are part of the California Collection at the Library of Congress, and her award winning cross-disiplinary and cross-cultural theatrical works have contributed to the Asian American canon since 1976 and continue to inspire and fascinate audiences worldwide.
