Representation and visibility are big concerns for Asian American theater artists around the country. This convening is intended to take stock of the challenges faced by Asian American theater artists in the Puget Sound region, and to consider short- and long-termed actions that might address them. While the convening is directly aimed at bringing together Asian American artists, we encourage theater practitioners from every background to come and participate in envisioning an American Theater that makes space for us all.
