September 2017: A-festival is BACK

A-fest fairies are quietly preparing the 2017 edition of A-festival. Please check out our blog for the program of the fest this October.

In the mean time, here are some pictures from our recent fundraiser, which took the form of a homemade “variety show” — a day & night of screenings, readings, performances, concerts, book sales & tarot sessions. We thank everyone who took the time to show, say aaaaaa with us and be present together in English, Vietnamese or otherwise.
