A Virtual Benefit for the Asian American Arts Alliance

Join A4 for our annual benefit!

Hosted by actor and Asian AF host, Donald Chang, GAAme Night will feature an evening of creative, interactive artist-led games!

A4 has commissioned 2021 Jadin Wong Dance fellow Annie Heath, dance artist Niki Farahani, 2021 Van Lier fellow Lesley Mok, A4 Virtual Residency alum and performer Bhurin Sead, and Chinese paper cutting artist Ming Liang Lu to present vibrantly unique renditions of traditional games like Bingo, Pictionary™, Trivia and more! The New Yorker illustrator Jeremy Nguyen will create a series of illustrations for one-of-a-kind Bingo cards.

This event is inspired by themes of community and togetherness, combining an evening of interactive fun with creative performance elements. Audience members will also be able to win exciting prizes from our family of supporters including tickets, gift certificates, socks and totes from Comme Si, silk masks from KAAREM, Asian craft hard seltzer from Lunar, surprise bags from Pinterest, and more!
