AAWW and Coronavirus

UPDATED: August 21, 2020

Dear Friends,

As a sanctuary for our collective imaginations, stories, and voices, there is nothing more important to the AAWW team than our community’s safety and well-being. Our commitment to our community is balanced with the practical realities of organizing multiple events of all sizes every month. With concerns about the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic growing each day, we have been closely monitoring recommended protective measures from local, state, and federal public health officials, and in response, will be indefinitely suspending all live public programming for the remainder of the year. The AAWW space will also be closed to the public during this period. 

It is the strength of our community that keeps us resilient and prepared to meet the challenge of this particular moment. We will continue to publish work online on The Margins, host virtual events and workshops, and find innovative ways to stay connected to our community.   

We are so grateful for your continued support, and we can’t wait to welcome you back to the Workshop in 2021. 

Sending light and love to you and yours. 

Jafreen Uddin
Executive Director
