Thursday, February 4, 2021
1 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. PT
Kristina Wong is a performance artist, comedian, writer and elected representative who has been presented internationally across North America, the U.K., Hong Kong and Africa. She identifies as a feminist and her work often tackles themes regarding race, sex, and privilege, often in conjunction with the Asian-American experience, through a satirical lens. With her help, we’ll take a deeper look at where comedy, cultural production and civic media intersect and how jokes and storytelling can serve as a catalyst for social change.
