Panel Discussion/Talk

HueArts NYC Panel

Thursday, June 30, 2022
12 – 2PM

Join us on Thursday, June 30th at 12PM EST for a conversation about HueArts NYC, a comprehensive map, directory, and report about arts entities founded and led by Black, Indigenous, and People of Color. Leaders from Museum Hue, Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Art (MoCADA), and Asian American Arts Alliance (A4) will discuss the creation of HueArts NYC as well as MoCADA and A4’s new partnership project, the Badung Residency, which is designed to uplift those whose practice is intended to foster solidarity between Asian American/Pacific Islander (AAPI) and Black communities.

Prompted by the 1955 Badung Conference [Bandung, West Java, Indonesia] which was the first large-scale Asian–African/Afro–Asian Conference, The Badung Residency aims to cultivate a dynamic safe space for a diverse cohort of changemakers interested in engaging in social justice discourse while expanding the narrative between communities. With recent impactful events such as the Stop Asian Hate and Black Lives Matter movements, this residency aims to connect with local leaders and community members to inspire unity through an artistic presentation, a shared exploratory experience, or special public program or project.

MoCADA and A4 leaders served as advisory committee members for HueArts NYC. They will share how this initiative speaks to each organization’s core mission and overall goals.

Each episode covers various topics from immigration to incarceration.
