Vanessa Mei Crofskey leads an exciting panel of phenomenal Asian creatives around the theme ‘Asian Migration: Our Stories’, inspired by artist Yona Lee’s In Transit series.

We will investigate questions such as: How has migration shaped contemporary Asian identity, feelings of belonging, and experiences of being familiar or foreign? What does it mean to live in transit, or between homelands? The panel features Vanessa in conversation with Sherry Zhang, Gemishka Chetty and Nahyeon Lee.

Hear the migration stories from a panel of Asian creatives with strong cultural identities about how their life experiences and societal perception as outsiders have impacted their creative practices. As a special treat to end the panel talk, Sherry Zhang and Gemishka Chetty will share some of their poetry.

Entry is free, however visitor capacity is limited. Please register for tickets on the link below.
