Asian Arts Initiative presents a symposium to celebrate two publications highlighting community-influenced arts practice. The Asian Arts Literary Review reflects on the organization’s 25th anniversary celebration that includes the Center-supported exhibition (ex)CHANGE: History, Place, Presence, a series of public artworks commissioned by six Asian American artists.

The second publication, What We Want is Here, is Asian Arts Initiative’s neighborhood programs report that documents community programs from 2013-18, with lessons from the field at large.
