Wear Yellow Proudly was created in 2020 as a response to the increasing amount of xenophobia towards Asians across the globe during the COVID-19 pandemic. Wear Yellow Proudly aims to bring awareness to Asian culture through music, art, education, as well as the daily lives of Asian artists. It showcases curated performances of music and poetry, hosts panel discussions, and celebrates the skills of Asian artists. The initiative hopes to strengthen the ties within the global community during the pandemic and beyond.

 

In the past year, using our digital platform, WYP  showcased over 60 Asian artists and their work, collaborated with 4 different organizations, hosted discussion panels on topics such as, mental health as an Asian artist, Asian-Black solidarity within the Black Lives Matter movement, the various generational identities of Asian-Americans, and the intersectionality of being Asian, queer, and an artist.

 

Wear Yellow Proudly is an initiative cultivated under the organization Aural Compass Projects. Aural Compass Projects is a non-profit music organization founded in 2019 that is dedicated to performing new and less-performed works. ACP strives to foster and develop a solid moral compass which guides our work in advancing towards equality and better representation in the arts.
