2016 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Jai Arun Ravine and Coda Wei will produce a music video, Ambient Asian Spaces, featuring an original song and choreography by Coda and a performance by Jai. They will recycle material from the queer Asian fan worlds they’ve created for their own survival as a form of cultural preservation, and will film places such as the Asian Food Court at Upper Darby's H-Mart, Chinatown's graffiti alleys, the bubble tea shop Tea-do, and the Asian markets on Washington Avenue and Spring Garden. Through their engagement and self-representation, they plan to empower themselves and other marginalized communities to broadcast their own visions.
