    About Lenora Lee Dance:

    The mission of Lenora Lee Dance (LLD) is to create and present large-scale multimedia performance works integrating dance, original music, video projection, text and installation that connect various styles of movement and music to culture, history and human rights issues.

    Lenora Lee (artistic director) has been a dancer, choreographer, and artistic director in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York. She has been an Artist Fellow at the de Young Museum, a Djerassi Resident Artist, and a Visiting Scholar at New York University through the Asian/Pacific/American Institute.

    Over the last ten years, LLD's work has grown to encompass the creation, presentation, and screening of films, museum and gallery installations, civic engagement and educational programming. The company creates works that are both set in public and private spaces, intimate and at the same time large-scale, inspired by individual stories as well as community strength. LLD is weaving together multiple artistic disciplines and socially conscious work, pushing the relevance of arts in various communities throughout the country.

    About East Wind ezine

    East Wind ezine is an online publication focused on political and cultural issues of Asian Pacific Americans. New articles/posts are added every month as they arrive to us.  All of the artists, writers, designers and videographers donate all or part of their time to create the content.  Our goal is to inform our readers about critical issues such as immigration, civil and human rights, and identity and culture as a step to increase Asian Pacific American participation in movements for social change.

    Many of the volunteers for East Wind ezine also worked on East Wind: Politics and Culture of Asians in the U.S., which was published twice a year from 1982 to 1989 by Getting Together Publications.  Although many of us are now in our retirement years, we continue to be active or have renewed our activism in the face of the rightwing and racist policies of the current administration.  Furthermore, we wish to build bridges with younger generations of activists to forge a stronger movement.

    If you are interested in submitting articles or artwork or have suggestions for topics we should cover, please write to East Wind ezine via the contact us page on the website.
