Asset 1_3x.png

Câylendar is a calendar that is inspired by a Vietnamese idiom, Cây Nhà Lá Vườn, and features the work of 12 Vietnamese illustrators and artists in the diaspora.

SmallLeaf_6_edited.png
Cây Nhà Lá Vườn, loosely translated as 'trees from home & leaves from the garden', is an idiom typically used to describe home-grown things.

In the context of the Vietnamese diaspora,

'home' has transcended not only the physical and spatial but also the geographical, and even the familial.

For the illustrations featured in this calendar,

the illustrators are to explore the concept of home, home-grown, and their identity as Vietnamese (with and without the hyphenation) in the diaspora.

The proceeds from the sales of Câylendar will be donated to VEGGI Farmer's Cooperative based out of New Orleans East, Louisiana.

Funds will be used to help VEGGI in their expansion efforts which include: additional product development including value-added goods, creation of new farm space in another Vietnamese community, popup events that emphasize Vietnamese food and culture, recruitment of additional food producers, and more. 
The calendar will be sold at $40. At this time, shipping is only available for US addresses.
