    Collaborative Art Space & Platform

    We believe that collaborative art builds dynamic relationships between artists across different mediums and from different walks of life. Art done collaboratively reveals a shared form of truth that is integral to community building and sustaining.

    Asian Artist Community & Network

     We recognize the unique set of challenges faced by diasporic Asians in the creative fields , and desire a safe communal, mental, and emotional space where we can feel comfortable engaging with, and dialoguing about our shared and individual identities and experiences.

    Critical Engagement with Culture & Ideas

    We aim to develop voices and perspectives that are informed, thoughtful and purposeful. Our critical engagement with historical and contemporary culture, ideas and art feeds and shapes our art practices.We believe that our work is not produced in a bubble of neutrality. Instead, it is formed and speaks into specific contexts. We identify and critically engage those contexts, and work in solidarity to build inclusive community.
