Political Inheritance is a visual arts and poetry performance exhibition featuring Asian and Pacific Islander womxn artists across diasporic experiences with the goal of provoking reflection, conversation, and bridging about the inherited experiences—passed down within cultures and families—that shape our relationships to political participation. Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders are facing some of the the lowest rates political participation in the U.S. By culturally contextualizing this AAPI political participation gap, Political Inheritance unearths the diversity of tensions, assumptions, and traumas inherited in AAPI’s political participation or lack thereof, while catalyzing a dialogue that questions the perception of our own political identities.
The exhibition was originally set to occur at Oakland Asian Cultural Center and has been postponed until further notice.

Water Pilgrimage is a journey back in time to explore the kinship between humans and water. It tells an important and emotional story of all living beings with water, and making our plea for water conservation through dance and imagery. It explores the divergent evolution in the relationship of all living beings to water. Fusing Contemporary and Butoh dance, Ogura transforms three women’s bodies into the powerful, mystical and vital essence of water. The movement catalyzes a visceral response on a tangled journey through beauty and crisis, from the origins of life to a world at risk.
This event was originally set to occur at Theatre of Yugen.
