Giving voice to AAPI art and culture in NYC and beyond.
What Can We Do?

What Can We Do? (WCWD?) is an artist grant program that supports artists and their creative projects showing care to the AAPI community in NYC. The program was created in response to the sharp increase in anti-Asian hate and violence during the pandemic which caused many people to experience grief, anxiety, and fear. WCWD? empowers artists, giving them a chance to find their place in the ecosystem of care through their talents and community connections.

This program is presented by Asian American Arts Alliance (A4) and is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council. Special thanks to Council Members Christopher Marte and Sandra Ung.
