Kiyomi Tanouye, The Organizer
"Busy" doesn't begin to describe the hectic, but rewarding, schedule held by Kiyomi Tanouye, Creative Director of Mission Creek Oakland Music and Arts Festival. Her savvy handling of a month-long festival of tunes and local arts reflects her "love for Oakland and the local arts community." Her vibrant, fuzzy coat and easygoing top and trousers allow her to zip from venue to band meetings in style. Want to learn more about Kiyomi and other inspiring gals?
