VC Event

March Filmmaker Meetup

Please join MAM and VC at Prime Produce to participate in a conversation about being mixed-race in the media space.

Mixed Asian Media is teaming up with The Video Consortium, Prime Produce Apprentice Cooperative, and Shelby Remillard of Steady NYC to create a safe space for a conversation about what it's like to be mixed-race in the media space today. Folks of any and all backgrounds, mixed or otherwise, are welcome to attend. The conversation will give space for mixed-race folks as well as adopted children of parents from a different cultural background to express their experiences.

7.00pm: doors open, delicious food catered by Chef Mom of Cafe 424 is served.
8.00pm: we'll create a circle of folks interested in talking, and everyone will have ~1 minute to share a piece of their experience. Shelby will moderate.
9.00pm: we'll discuss commonalities in experiences and consider actionable items as well as resources that folks might be interested in.
10.00pm: we'll part ways until next time :)
