About the event
Let's Talk About Us: Public Art Launch Event Wednesday, February 15th, 10:45AM-12:30PM Powell BART Station, Powell St, SF
Amanda Phingbodhipakkiya was a guest at two of our events last month [1/20 Chinatown Friday and 1/28 Hopping into the Lunar New Year] and now she's unveiling her latest project! Go check it out! Amanda Phingbodhipakkiya is unveiling her latest public art campaign with the Asian Women's Shelter titled "Let's Talk About Us" - a domestic violence prevention campaign focused on the AAPI community.
In partnership with BART, the campaign will launch with an official unveiling at Powell BART Station in San Francisco on Wednesday February 15th @ 11AM.
To attend the event, please enter the Powell BART station from the 4th & Market entrance. The first 50 attendees will receive one of five exclusive posters from the art campaign, signed by the artist. There will be a short press conference including elected officials, community leaders, BART representatives, Amanda and Asian Women’s Shelter staff.
Amanda and Asian Women’s Shelter will officially launch the campaign with an open invitation to the local AAPI community as well as our broader San Francisco/ Bay Area community to be brave and “talk about us”. Violence is an issue that affects anyone and everyone, from members of a household where there may be incidents of domestic or family violence, to those of us bearing witness again and again to mass shootings. What are the connections? And most importantly, what can we do differently to prevent violence from occurring in the first place? All of us are capable of taking small everyday actions to create a safe city and community for everyone - join us!
