Amidst the pandemic, on-going systemic racism and the rise of anti-Asian violence, artists and people of color with mission-driven practices are severely impacted. Many lost gigs and opportunities while facing lots of unknown and what the future might hold. Through hardships, we know the power of creative resiliency and what it means to keep on going.
Join this talk as Vietnamese American artist and organizer Ngoc-Tran Vu shares her socially engaged practice and tips on how to rest, stay resilient, work, collaborate, and be sustainable during such turbulent times. Let’s strategize, share best practices on adaptation, and learn resources on what to do next to maintain forward momentum for ourselves and as a community.
This lecture will be moderated by Program Director, Jay Wong and will feature an opening poem recital by young advocate Lily Li-Nagy.
