The Asian American Literature Festival is a new model of literary programming: literature meets the museum. It is a convening, engine, and incubator. It is a community-generated cooperative space with dynamic, interactive programming for sharing and growing Asian American literature.

Literature has always been a central artform for Asian American communities. We believe it needs and deserves perennial stewardship. Not simply creating and holding space for it to exist--we believe stewardship means collectively determining what it might make possible, and for whom. We see the Festival as an opportunity for more equitable distribution of resources, for creating cooperatives, for sharing commitments to one another's well-being: solidarities. We see it as a space for investing in literature's potentials, and thereby our own.
