“This festival isn’t just about the Asian American community supporting its artists; it’s also about artists supporting the community,” says Eric Byler, writer/director of Charlotte Sometimes, Americanese, and TRE. “The alchemy of the arts and media is a path to political empowerment for Asian Americans and for all marginalized communities. As artists, we can lead the way by joining and supporting organizations like Asian Pacific Americans for Progress. We’d be nowhere without the community’s support, so really, this is the least we can do.”
