Asian American Youth Storytellers

recruitment graphic for a youth-led research & art project.

Asian American Youth Storytellers (AAYS) is a youth-led research & art project founded by Khin Oo and me. In January 2019, we launched an online campaign to recruit a cohort of 6 Asian American youth conducting intergenerational oral interviews on Asian American activism and creating art based on their findings.

I created the art for this graphic while Khin did the typesetting. My intentions were to reflect some of the many forms of artistic expression in the Asian diaspora. I posted this graphic on Facebook with a description of the Youth Researcher/Artist position. That post alone had 40 shares, and AAYS received 50 applications due to our marketing efforts.

Completed January 2019.
