September Town Hall: Comics, Animation, and Digital Art
6:30 – 9PM
Join the Asian American Arts Alliance for our September Town Hall, featuring artists and groups working in comics, animation, and digital art! Learn about the diverse and exciting creative projects, conferences, and opportunities being created by community organizations and artists during Town Hall’s rapid-fire line-up of 60-second pitches.
Featured presenters are: Ramon Gil, designer/illustrator, who will talk about his work and the upcoming Diversity Comic Con; Larry Hama, comic book artist/writer, who will discuss his long and extensive career; and Celeste Lai, animator/illustrator, who will share her animated short Blankfillers and her animated work with TED-Ed.
Sign up to pitch and share an upcoming project, promote an event, ask for help, find collaborators and venues for your work, inform others about an opportunity or residency, or simply introduce yourselves and your work to the community. Bring something to share for our post-pitch potluck!
You don’t have to pitch to attend—RSVP to enjoy the potluck, presentations, and the company of fellow artists and organizers!
6:30 PM: Doors open
7:00 PM: Pitches & Presentations

Town Hall is the Alliance’s bi-monthly community gathering event that features performances, pitches, and a potluck! We welcome arts organizations and artists of all disciplines (musicians, actors, filmmakers, poets, visual artists)—anyone with a creative fire and joy for the arts—to pitch upcoming projects, find collaborators, or discover new opportunities in a lively space. The catch? You have 60 seconds to deliver your pitch!
RSVP required to pitch; RSVP encouraged to attend.
This event is free and open to the public.
