Public Programming InSite: Art + Commemoration

Kundiman -  Together We Are New York: Asian Americans Remember and Re-Vision 9/11

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

Public funding for Together We Are New York is provided by LMCC’s Fund for Creative Communities, which is supported by the New York State Council on the Arts, and by the Manhattan Community Arts Fund, which is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
