Asian American Arts Alliance

Art, Environment, and Justice in a Changing World

Wednesday, May 1

6:30-8:30 PM

Asian American Arts Alliance

20 Jay Street, Suite 740

Brooklyn, NY 11201

Climate change, environmental justice, sustainability—these terms have become increasingly crucial to our current social and political discourse. How do artists respond to these issues in their creative work? How does their artistic practice advance their beliefs in environmental justice? How can the work itself gain wider traction and raise awareness in our culture and society?

Join the Asian American Arts Alliance for a closer look at how creative practice intersects with environmental justice and activism. Five artists working in multiple disciplines will present recent projects and walk us through their origin stories and underlying rationales, approaches to artmaking and activism, and desired impact. The presentations will be followed by a moderated discussion with the artists and Q&A with the audience.

Panelists include Lanxing Fu (Superhero Clubhouse), Juliann Ma (S E A S), Jess X. Snow (AFTEREARTH), Tattfoo Tan (Heal the Man in order to Heal the Land), and Yasuyo Tanaka (If the Wind Blows), moderated by Seema Pandhya (sustainability consultant and multidisciplinary artist).

This program is free and open to the public.

This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council; the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature; and Con Edison.

Celebrate the rich and vibrant heritage of the AAPI community at the Asian American Arts Alliance's May Town Hall, featuring our fellow Asian American arts organizations from across NYC! Learn about the varied and exciting work being done and produced by our community organizations and artists with a rapid-fire line-up of 60-second pitches.

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, with a prize for the best potluck dish!

You don't have to pitch to attend—RSVP to enjoy the potluck, presentations, and the company of fellow artists and organizers!

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.
