February Town Hall
Mon, February 13, 2017, 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM EST
Celebrate dance at the Asian American Arts Alliance's first Town Hall of 2017. Enjoy featured performances by our 2016 Jadin Wong Dance awardee Jesse Obremski and the H. T. Chen & Dancers Company!
For those of you who are new, Town Hall is the Alliance's bi-monthly event that features performances, pitches, and a potluck! We welcome artists of all disciplines (musicians, actors, filmmakers, poets, visual artists -- anyone with creative fire and joy for the arts), as well as arts organizations, to pitch upcoming events, projects, find collaborators, or opportunities in a safe community space. The catch? You have 60 seconds to deliver your pitch!
You don't have to pitch to attend - RSVP to just come and listen! And feel free to bring something delicious to share. After the pitches, you can mingle over a community potluck and get to know some fellow artists.
Learn more about previous Town Halls by visiting our Tumblr.
This event is free and open to the public. RSVP required.
