The Asian American Arts Alliance (A4), Asian Arts Initiative, and Philadelphia Asian Performing Artists, invite you to a special-edition of our virtual Town Hall series, in celebration of AAPI Heritage MonthMay Town Hall: NYC <-> PHL will bring together artists of all disciplines, creatives, programmers, and more to foster new collaborations, networking, and idea-sharing across the 95 miles between New York City and Philadelphia.

Learn about the diverse and exciting creative arts projects and opportunities coming out of the Asian American communities during A4’s signature Town Hall’s rapid-fire line-up of 60-second pitches.

Sign up to pitch and share an upcoming project or exhibition, 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 where we will network and converse in Zoom breakout rooms with fellow attendees!

This event is FREE and open to the public. RSVP is required to pitch and/or attend. You don’t have to pitch to attend—RSVP to enjoy the presentations, idea exchange, and the virtual company of fellow artists and organizers! We’ll send the Zoom meeting link to all registered attendees.


Asian American Arts Alliance (A4) is a nonprofit organization based in Brooklyn, NY dedicated to ensuring greater representation, equity, and opportunities for Asian American artists and cultural organizations through resource sharing, promotion, and community building.

Located in Philadelphia’s Chinatown North, Asian Arts Initiative is a multidisciplinary arts center offering exhibitions, performances, artist residencies, youth workshops, and a community gathering space. Here, all of us can view and create art that reflects our lives, and think critically, creatively about the future we want to build for our communities.

Philadelphia Asian Performing Artists (PAPA) is a grassroots, membership-based collective that exists to build community among, and address the lack of economic and artistic opportunities for, people of Pan-Asian descent involved in the performing arts in the Philadelphia region. We do this through member-led programming such as community-building events, professional development programs, performance opportunities, and grassroots organizing.
