The Supply Education Group x Jason Min

Jason Min

Musician Jason Min and non-profit group, “The Supply Education Group,” have teamed up to give back to education. The Supply Education Group believes in the power of education. Their mission is simple: to move from village to village in developing countries, empowering them by promoting education. Working with local school administrators, the local community, and community leaders, they create highly researched educational projects focused on three objectives: educational access for all children, community impact, and local income generation to ensure long-term self sustainability. The hope is that these projects will create a long-term ripple effect of driving local economies and helping communities pull themselves out of poverty.

Acoustic indie artist Jason Min has joined the efforts of The Supply by committing to donating a 100% of his pre-sale for his upcoming EP to this organization. All pre-sales purchased by November 19th will go directly to the Lenana Recovery Fund. You can support this great cause and an Asian American artist who’s giving up his talents and gifts to help people around the world by buying here or donating to The Supply here..

Collaboratory VIII: Order to Go!

Collaboratory VIII: Order to Go!

If you’re in the Los Angeles area, Great Leap invites you to come out on Saturday, September 11, 2010 for the culminating performance for their annual mentorship program,  Collaboratory VIII, exploring the environmental impact of single-use food containers and utensils.

Hosted by Amy Hill, this performance features the work of artists Janet Dandridge, June Kaewsith, Zumi Mizokami, Ayuko Sato and Shannon Shue. The evening’s festivities will also include performances by Nobuko and friends as well as a live screening of B.Y.O.Chopstix!

As a conscious effort to make their cause known, Great Leap made a music video in order to address the environmental impact of disposable wooden chopsticks. Directed by Dan Kwong and starring Nobuko, this funny yet pointed music video hopes to encourage people to “bring your own” chopsticks when eating out to help the 100 billion pairs of wood chopsticks that are thrown away every year.

Great Leap will be showing this music video at the Collaboratory VIII: Order to Go performance. For more information and to purchase tickets, go here.

B.Y.O. CHOPSTIX – don’t throw them away!


Great Leap, Inc., is a Los Angeles-based, multicultural arts organization which uses art as both performance and creative practice to deepen relations among people of diverse cultures and faiths and to transform how we live on the earth. They collaborate and create with professional artists, foster new leadership in the arts by mentoring emerging artists, and build community through our workshops, residencies and performances.
