NüVoices of the Diaspora is an evening filled with storytelling by artists and by the community, headlined by both young and leading luminaries of Asian American writing and performance art. Muna Tseng, Alvin Eng, Karoline Kan, and Angel Yau will each present from their oeuvre varying from a reading, spoken word, video and music – dedicated to the theme of the evening: NüVoices of the Diaspora.
As part of the evening we invite the audience to bring along their own poems or brief excerpts of writing, old or new, fiction or non-fiction, to share in the last half hour of the program. There is no obligation to bring anything, however, and we are looking forward to an incredible evening filled with stories and creativity.
NüVoices is an international collective of writers, journalists, artists and supporters who celebrate the creative work of women who work on subjects related to China and the greater diaspora. The group started when a group of female journalists and friends felt enraged that sources and ‘experts’ on China highlighted in media were predominantly men, and that there was a prevalence of ‘manels’ in China. In response we started a directory of nearly 500 female experts on Greater China, which has significantly boosted women and minority representation in media stories and conference programming. NüVoices now has nearly a dozen volunteer-driven chapters around the world, including in Shanghai, Washington D.C., Berlin, London, New York. We are an inclusive group and welcome all supporters of all genders.
