Asian American Arts Alliance (A4) invites you to participate in our July Town Hall, highlighting how Asian American artists and creators are producing work and/or collaborating with other POC community groups to support justice movements and actively advocate for social change.

Join us and learn about the wide range of activism-focused projects coming out of our community during Town Hall’s rapid-fire line-up of 60-second pitches.

Featured Presenters:

  • Director Jess McLeod will present Asian Artists 4 Black Lives, a campaign launched by the Asian American artists of Hamilton, and discuss the urgent need for Asian artists to act in solidarity with the Black community.
  • Artist Ameya Okamoto will introduce her protest x intersectionality workshop and share her creative practice that deconstructs social injustice and biased behaviors.

Sign up to pitch and share your idea or project, promote an online event, ask for advice, find collaborators and resources for your work, or simply introduce yourself to the community. After the pitches and presentations, stick around for some virtual networking and conversation in Zoom breakout rooms with fellow attendees. Instead of our usual potluck, we’re asking participants to share a resource that fits into the topics of this event. It can be a quote, a funding campaign, a social media post, a book, a song, or anything.

You don’t need to pitch to attend—RSVP to enjoy the presentations, idea exchange, and the virtual company of fellow artists and organizers!

This event is FREE and open to the public. RSVP is required to pitch and/or attend. We’ll send the Zoom meeting link to all registered attendees.
