AAI’s Youth Workshops, ongoing throughout the year, focus on a general understanding of, and relation to a larger social context, particularly relevant to the younger Asian-American generation. Additionally, in providing the opportunity to meet others and build a diverse community, the facilities render a safe environment to foster innovation and promote development. The workshops span a variety of artistic outlets, including theater, spoken word, poetry, writing, documentary video, narrative film, short video, drawing/painting, mural making, hip-hop dance, and DJ techniques, all of which are pertinent to the American teenager, continuous throughout the academic year after school hours or on the weekends.

“People have this obsession. They want you to be like you were in 1969. They want you to, because otherwise their youth goes with you.... Its very selfish, but its understandable.”
