Coffee with Andrés
Friday, February 26 from 12:00 to 12:30 pm
Sunday, February 28 from 3:00 to 3:30 pm
Take a coffee break with City of Asylum’s new Executive Director, Andrés Franco, in a new series of online chats called Coffee with Andrés. Coffee is a central part of Andrés’ Colombian heritage and is one of his great passions. These session feature conversations with writers and musicians, activists and artists, discussing their work and sharing a cup with Andrés – and with you. The first guest is Vietnamese singer and activist Mai Khoi, the most recent exiled artist-in-residence on Sampsonia Way. Khoi will share her story, her music, and teach Andrés how to make a traditional Vietnamese coffee.
