The Bandung 2023 Residency Information Session
6:30 – 7:30PM
Asian American Arts Alliance (A4) and The Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts (MoCADA) are pleased to present The Bandung 2023 Residency, a 4-month joint residency program designed to uplift the work of artists, organizers, educators, and waymakers interested in engaging in social justice discourse, restorative healing, place-based cultural practices, expanding the narrative and deepening understanding between communities, and promoting cross-community allyship, whether for personal transformation and/or in service to the AAPI and Black communities.
Lisa Gold, Executive Director of A4 and Amy Andrieux, Executive Director of MoCADA will present a pre-submission information session on Monday, November 21, 2023 from 6:30–7:30pm ET. The session will discuss the vision of the program and review the guidelines and best practices to submit an application for participation.
Closed Captioning will be provided at this session. If you have any questions or accessibility needs, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
A cohort of 7-10 NYC-based visionaries will be selected to participate in the program consisting of self-directed and group learning exchanges which will take place in roughly bi-weekly, 2-hour sessions. Residents will receive a participation stipend of $1,000 and will be encouraged to connect with local leaders and community members to inspire unity through the lens of artistic or experiential projects.
The residency is named for the groundbreaking 1955 summit held in Bandung, Indonesia, bringing together leaders from 29 newly independent Asian and African states emerging from colonial rule, with the aim of ending racial discrimination and ensuring collaboration and a peaceful coexistence.
