Asian Arts Initiative Residency

October 14-18, 2017 Residency

Writer Aaron Jafferis and I begin research and interviews for Activist Songbook. Thanks to a commission, introductions and space from Asian Arts Initiative in Philadelphia, we connect with immigrants, refugees and Asian Americans who fight oppression in multiple ways.

Initial interviews and meetings resonate with truth as we figure out multiple ways to fight oppression through songs, raps, chants, and instructions.
