2020 / Weekly Cultural News / Jul. 27-Aug. 02 / Los Angeles lost one of Japanese tradition keepers: Head of Azuma Dance School passed

To readers of Monthly Cultural News

Amid COVID-19 outbreak, we had to suspend publishing Monthly Cultural News due to all Japanese cultural events were suspended at cultural centers and art museums.

For subscribers of Monthly Cultural News, we started publishing Weekly Cultural News as substitute for the monthly.

Currently Weekly Cultural News is free to the public to download.

Cultural News has been depended on subscription incomes and we face financial difficulties now because monthly subscriptions are stopped.

Beside publishing Weekly Cultural News, we send more times to support Japanese speaking communities in Los Angeles because they need Japanese language information to understand this crisis accurately.

Japanese language email blasts and video meeting arrangements are found at https://digest.culturalnews.com

We need $30,000 fund right away to continue current projects and resume publishing Monthly Cultural News. We have raised $6,500 as of the end of July. Your continuous supports are appreciated via https://culturalnews.com/donation
