Join the Asian American Arts Alliance for our September Town Hall, featuring artists and groups working in comics, animation, and digital art! Learn about the diverse and exciting creative projects, conferences, and opportunities being created by community organizations and artists during Town Hall's rapid-fire line-up of 60-second pitches.
Featured presenters are: Ramon Gil, designer/illustrator, who will talk about his work and the upcoming Diversity Comic Con; Larry Hama, comic book artist/writer, who will discuss his long and extensive career; and Celeste Lai, animator/illustrator, who will share her animated short Blankfillers and her animated work with TED-Ed.
Sign up to pitch and share an upcoming project, promote an event, ask for help, find collaborators and venues for your work, inform others about an opportunity or residency, or simply introduce yourselves and your work to the community. Bring something to share for our post-pitch potluck!
You don't have to pitch to attend—RSVP to enjoy the potluck, presentations, and the company of fellow artists and organizers!
6:30 PM: Doors open
7:00 PM: Pitches & Presentations
8:00 PM: Potluck
Town Hall is the Alliance's bi-monthly community gathering event that features performances, pitches, and a potluck! We welcome arts organizations and artists of all disciplines (musicians, actors, filmmakers, poets, visual artists)—anyone with a creative fire and joy for the arts—to pitch upcoming projects, find collaborators, or discover new opportunities in a lively space. The catch? You have 60 seconds to deliver your pitch!
RSVP required to pitch; RSVP encouraged to attend.
This event is free and open to the public.

The Asian American Arts Alliance is proud to offer a new initiative to further the careers of Asian Americans pursuing careers in the arts. Table Dish, our latest professional development series, will bring together experts in specific disciplines with aspiring professionals in a roundtable setting to answer questions, provide advice, and create networking and mentoring opportunities.
Our second event in the series focuses on the field of visual art. Established professionals (gallerists, curators, auction specialists, development directors, program officers, etc.) will dish out career advice and lead candid discussions about different career paths and opportunities. The roundtables are designed to provide emerging and mid-career professionals the opportunity to network and build relationships with peers and mentors, offer a genuine way for A4 established professional community members to give back, and help nurture Asian American artists and arts leaders to ensure a robust pipeline of talent in the field.
Table Dish: Visual Art will be composed of three 30-minute networking sessions. Professionals will remain at the same table while small groups of individual participants will move around every 30 minutes to meet with a total of three different leaders.
Angela Goding, Director of Development, MoMA PS1
Irene Kim, Regional Head of VIP Relations, Americas, Art Basel
Lisa Kim, Director, Ford Foundation Gallery
Preeya Seth, Impressionist & Modern Art Senior Specialist, Bonhams
Herb Tam, Curator and Director of Exhibitions, Museum of Chinese in America
Karen Wong, Deputy Director, New Museum
There is a $15 nonrefundable fee to register. Please list your top three leader preferences for networking sessions when you register. Due to the number of participants, we cannot guarantee matches, but the earlier you apply, the better your chances of getting paired with your top choices.
NOTE: Doors open at 6:00 and sessions begin promptly at 6:30. We cannot reschedule your sessions if you arrive late. Tickets will not be sold at the door. THIS IS NOT A PORTFOLIO REVIEW SESSION.
