Open Call for Costumes/Art:
Walk in Manhattan's Chinatown Lunar New Year Parade with the Asian American Arts Centre!

Parade: Sunday, January 29, 2012
Starts: 12:00pm (noon)

We would like to show that the arts are alive in Chinatown while celebrating the Year of the Dragon!  Help represent the Asian American Arts Centre and show your own artistic creativity by wearing a costume or displaying other artwork and walking with our banner in the Chinatown Lunar New Year Parade.  We had a wonderful time last year. 

Lets show the arts through creative costumes!  Costume ideas or ways to march in the parade with visual material are open to your own interpretation, but lets focus on a slant of positivity, to promote the Asian American Arts in Chinatown, the New York City community and in celebration of Lunar New Year.

*You are welcome to invite others to join us.
*Costumes/art are not required but are highly encouraged.
*Collaborative costume ideas might be a good idea to make a greater impact.
*No political or religious agendas or confrontations

*The parade takes place on January 29, 2011 and participants must be able to arrive by noon at a designated meeting spot (TBA)

*Let's make this a fun time and way to engage in the community through this band of artists.

Please RSVP to this email ASAP with your name and contact info if you plan on participating.  Please also give me an idea of your costume (if you know) and if you will be bringing others with you to march and how many.

You can let me know later what your costume idea is, but let us know if you would like to participate so we can get a count.

More details will follow!!
