Drop by to share tea and sweets from a different culture each week and chat about any and everything. Tea is the medium for a ritual that is practiced daily around the world. Though the ritual may vary, tea carves out time and space for hospitality, tradition and mediation. Come share with us. 

Tea Afar is produced by April Banks, a Los Angeles based conceptual artist and traveler. For over a decade Banks made art that raised awareness and pointed to the global disparity in food security, farmer’s rights and fair trade. Tea Afar, a nomadic storytelling experience, was conceived as a salve — bringing us together across borders — for all the divisiveness and exploitation that is propagated by a global trade economy. For more information on April's work, visit www.teaafar.com.

This program is made possible by the Remsen Bird Fund and the Arts and Urban Experience Initiative, which is generously funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

Parking information and more can be found on our Visitor Info page.
