Asian American Feminist Media Making


Tuesday, March 30, 2021, 5:30pm to 7:00pm


For the final installment of the Processing These Times: Cure/ation and Creation workshop series, join the AAPI Studies Working group and the Asian American Feminist Collective for an interactive discussion and workshop on media practices and narratives that shape our politics. Members of the collective will introduce participants to different creative forms for feminist community building and political education; discuss our orientations and connections to Asian American feminism, and engage in collective media-making.

The Asian American Feminist Collective engages intersectional feminist politics grounded within communities of those with East, Southeast, and South Asian; Pacific Islander; and multiethnic and diasporic Asian identities. The collective seeks to foster dialogue that explores the intersections of Asian/American identity with issues of social justice in order to build toward collective liberation. They continue to interrogate and define the Asian-American feminist movement through media-making, creative practices, and political education workshops.
