Miko Kuro's Midnight Tea at the Taoist Studies Institute — Seattle, WA, 2013

Miko Kuro's Midnight Tea fosters dynamic cross-cultural collaborations, and genuine encounters with artistic "Self, " and is one of several projects create by poet and community arts organizer, Natasha Marin.

These events strive to bring high-quality art experience to the lives of artists, non-traditional art consumers, and members of underserved communities alike, in a manner that is both revert and expimental. 

"I began this project in 2008 in my hometown, Vancouver (Canada) not knowing what to expect...and each time I do it, I begin to understand a little bit more of what it's really about. It's about people, it's about poetry, it's about coming together in the space of the unknown to make something of aesthic value that is a true testimony to the potential of our own humanity." — Natasha Marin
