our mission

Asians in the Arts (AitA) is a community organization that strives to elevate artists of the Asian diaspora and Pacific Islander ancestry and their work.

API perspectives, in every place where they are marginalized, have been blocked from gaining wider attention in artistic fields. We believe in the power of the arts to shift national conversations and cultures. As such, we see artistic equity for the API community as a facilitator to equality for the community as a whole. Our goal is to support artists of the API diaspora through giving them a larger platform, creating orignal content, and fostering community.
