Project Description

Collective Stories

A digital multi-media event presented in partnership with 2g Productions

May 20, 2020

10 multidisciplinary artists unpack what it means to be Vietnamese. After a series of sharing sessions inspired by Free Southern Theatre’s methods, each artist was given the freedom to devise a story on their own terms. The culmination is an online multimedia event. This multimedia event includes video, music, and poetry that explores facets of the Vietnamese and Vietnamese-American identity.

A digital project created the beginning of the COVID shutdowns, Collective Stories highlighted RAISE NYC’s Undocu Fund which provided mini-grants to undocumented restaurant workers effected by shutdowns.
