For too long, Asian Americans have been underrepresented, stereotyped, or whitewashed in mainstream media & left very much invisible. In recent years, a growing grassroots movement & collaborative effort of Asian American creatives in new media, music, & film have changed the scene & brought this issue to the forefront after years of cultural evolution. This panel will gather some leading Asian American creatives to discuss the layered issues behind the challenges of being pegged as “unmarketable” by Hollywood & proof of how our stories enrich & entertain a universal audience & impact our world.
