On Friday, we had our gallery opening at Houston Street Center featuring the photography of Wazha Dube, Albert Gumilang, Lauryn Ishak, Michael Mastroianni, Rob Oandasan and Mei-Chen Lioe.
A shout out to the fabulous performances by AH Dance Company, Shayna Padovano, and Molly Does Not Approve! A BIG Thank YOU to Alison S. from Houston Street Center for organizing everything. And last but not least THANK YOU to all the folks that attended for coming out and supporting us - it was great to meet the NYC Third Culture Kid group and coordinators (Thanks Eddie & Aradhana - you are both awesome!).
The gallery will be up for the rest of the month so if you didn't get a chance to see the wonderful photography please go check it out at Houston Street Center, 273 Bowery (just ask the Univ. Settlement front desk where to go). Hours of operation run Monday through Thursday — 8AM to 10PM, Friday — 8AM to 8PM, and Saturday and Sunday — 9AM to 6PM.
A few blocks up 2nd avenue, Kirsten Ho was representing AH Dance Company by performing her solo at the Tradition in Transition Festival at the LABA Theater on 14th st. Her solo explores what it means to be biracial to her. I got to see it on Saturday and the rest of the festival was fabulous! A shout out to Laura Smith and Lydia Kramer from Intercultural Arts Dialogue for making the performance such a huge success! I really enjoyed the programming. It was also fun to meet more creative TCKs (and dancer/choreographers!)
