Exiled Voices: City of Asylum Resident Writer Reunion
Tuesday, March 16 from 7:00 to 8:00 pm
In October of its ‘19-’20 anniversary season, COA celebrated 15 years of sanctuary with a one-night-only, sold out event showcasing the work of City of Asylum’s former Writers-in-Residence: Huang Xiang (China), Horacio Castellanos Moya (El Salvador), Khet Mar (Burma), Israel Centeno (Venezuela), and Yaghoub Yadali (Iran). This rebroadcast features highlights from that special 2019 reunion at Alphabet City, and invites you to once again reflect on City of Asylum’s role as a bastion of creative free expression and cross-cultural exchange. Rediscover and reflect on what has been accomplished together, as COA continues to push its mission forward with its new cohort of Writers-in-Residence.
