Public Programming InSite: Art + Commemoration
Together We Are New York helped to ensure Asian American community voices were presented and shared as a vital part of the fabric of city memory and the nation’s journey forward. To remember the diverse communities affected by the events of 9/11, Kundiman, an organization dedicated to the creation and promotion of Asian American poetry, engaged nine poets to interview Asian Americans on their experiences that day and in the decade since. The material was crafted into poems for a series of public performances and dialogues, uniquely combining historical documentation with artistic production and public engagement. The program opened with a performance on September 13 at Fordham University.
Featured poets: Hossannah Asuncion, Tamiko Beyer, Marlon Esguerra, April Heck, Eugenia Leigh, Bushra Rehman, Zohra Saed, Purvi Shah, R.A. Villanueva
