Please join us for a special monthly Town Hall as the Asian American Arts Alliance (a4) community gathers together to help support relief efforts in Japan. We'll have special artistic performances from the Japanese and the Asia Pacific region as well as a meditation Qigong practice dedicated to all those who have been affected by the earthquake and tsunami.
A representative from the Japan Society will be on hand to share updates about their Relief Fund and how their efforts are helping people directly on the ground. You'll have an opportunity to ask questions as well as make a contribution if you wish. And there still will be plenty of time for our regular two-minute pitches, micro-pitches, and our famous potluck afterwards!
Join a4 as we bring together the arts community to offer support during a time of crisis, grieving, and solidarity. During such challenging times, healing and remembering through the arts is a way we can engage in significant and meaningful issues as citizens of the world.
The 2-minute pitch list is full. All attendees are welcome to make a 30-second pitch at the end of Town Hall in the dedicated micro-pitches part of the program.
Please bring some food to share for the second part of our program, it's a potluck!
Don't miss it- no two Town Halls are the same. All are welcome.
a4's Town Hall is made possible with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts, celebrating 50 years of building strong, creative communities in New York State's 62 counties. Additional support is provided by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, the National Endowment for the Arts, the Metropolitan Life Foundation, New York Community Trust and Con Edison.
