The Mixed Space is proud to be a sponsor of MAM Fest, and invites you to join our CEO, Lili Stiefel, for several events, including a Workshop: “12 Steps to Starting a Project,” a Panel: “Creative and Community Work in the Virtual World,” and a Roundtable Discussion: “Guidelines for Leaders of Online Spaces.”
The Mixed Space was launched in 2018 as a community-building space where multiracial and multiethnic creatives could explore their intersectional identities through conversations and group activities. Every month, Founder Lili Stiefel hosts a monthly meetup to discuss topics related to social justice and the arts. It was through these meetups that Lili was introduced to Alex Chester, Founder of Mixed Asian Media.
Mixed Asian Media (formerly known as Hapa Mag) was established in 2017 as a space to give voice to those with mixed Asian/Pacific Islander ancestry. Upon recognizing that this community is ever-expanding, their decision to rebrand was made in hopes of establishing a broader collective. In celebration of this, they present the inaugural Mixed Asian Media Fest. From September 15th – 19th, ticket holders will be treated to film screenings, theater, dance, discussions, and more.
Sept. 16 5-6 p.m. EST – Panel
A group of leaders and creatives who are at different stages of their careers discuss their perspectives and experiences. The conversation will focus on collaboration and sharing your vision in virtual spaces. The pandemic world has altered the way people go about creating work and community and this panel will explore new ways for you to connect, create, and persevere.
