Join us for the 2:30pm performance of The Porch On Windy Hill on Saturday, April 29 and stay afterwards for a community panel discussion exploring the visibility and importance of Asian, Asian-American, and Pacific Islander characters, creators, and stories in our cultural landscape. Inspired by the exploration of Mira’s biracial identity in the play, panelists will address the impact of AAPI voices in the arts and beyond.
