Asian American Studies at Hunter College presents Arts & Activism

Arts & Activism: Reflections from Curtis Chin and Bino Realuyo

Wednesday, October 20 at 5:00 p.m. EDT

Online Event

Admission: Free

Asian American Studies at Hunter College presents an exciting discussion of Arts & Activism.

Between the AIDS crisis, attacks on the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Miss Saigon controversy, artists and activists in the early ’90s needed to find new ways to build solidarity and counter invisibility. Founded in 1991, the Asian American Writers Workshop (AAWW) was a product of these times.

Join a discussion with two of the organization’s co-founders Curtis Chin, an award-winning writer and documentary filmmaker, and acclaimed novelist Bino Realuyo. Learn how AAWW built the foundation from its roots. Vivian Louie, Director of the Asian American Studies Center and Program at Hunter College and Professor of Urban Policy and Planning, will moderate the discussion.

The event is co-sponsored by Hunter College’s English Department, Sociology Department, and the Urban Policy & Planning Department.
