Who are we?

Vanessa and Elaine are Kam and 46, Fil-Ams from Hawaii and California who were raised in an immigrant household. Kam and 46 is an ode to the homes we grew up in where we learned our culture. Being away from home, we always appreciate and carry our values, customs, and traditions. Sharing the food we grew up with embodies this spirit and is an extension of sharing a piece of us and our home.

Les and Seda are co-curators of SAMASAMA. SAMASAMA (Tagalog for “all together”) began with the humble mission of celebrating diversity through art and gathering. Founded in Washington, DC in 2016 as a collective art show and benefit celebrating Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month, SAMASAMA has evolved to curate year-round programs, events, and partnerships to highlight diasporic narratives and facilitate nuanced dialogue. The mission of SAMASAMA remains honoring ancestral and indigenous roots while pushing creative boundaries to grow our understanding of current and future generations’ multicultural identities.
