Aaina Festival – Stories of South Asian Women
May 9, 2013 - 4:44 pm
Yoni Ki Baat is a growing collection of stories told by South Asian women inspired by Eve Ensler’s Vagina Monologues.
In the South Asian community it is often taboo to discuss topics of sexuality and sexual abuse. But South Asian arts organization, Tasveer, hopes this weekend’s Aaina Festival will change that.
The festival provides a space to talk about these issues, as well as issues of South Asian identity as collective and as individuals. The festival takes place May 10-12th at the Seattle Asian Art Museum in Volunteer Park, 1400 East Prospect Street in Seattle.
Sonya Green and her guests explore how the Aaina Festival honors and celebrates the life of South Asian women.
