DanceAfrica

Updates to come!

For the first time in 42 years, BAM’s DanceAfrica festival went completely online. With shelter-in-place in effect in NYC, we brought this decades-long tradition into our audiences’ homes with a virtual bazaar, a DJed Zoom dance party, remote talks with BAM’s Charmaine Warren, and livestreamed classes and screenings.

Love from BAM, phase 2


Love from BAM was introduced in March 2020 as a newsletter sharing BAM’s virtual content with audiences in light of New York’s shelter-in-place rules. Kayla Battle illustrated the identity for the first part of Love from BAM emphasizing unity across the distance of quarantine. As NYC businesses slowly reopened over the summer of 2020, the Love from BAM illustrations shifted to reflect people reintroducing themselves to Brooklyn and the outdoors.

Pinned Down? Rise Up!


The “PINS” (Person In Need of Supervision) program is a legal process that introduces a young person to the criminal justice system, and which can cause immediate and long-term harm to young people and their families by increasing the likelihood of detentions and out-of-home placements. We collaborated with CUP and CCFY to design a poster that illuminates the downfalls of the PINS process and empowers families to consider community-based alternatives to PINS for their young people.

In collaboration with The Center for Urban Pedagogy (CUP) and Community Connections for Youth (CCFY) as part of CUP’s 2017 Making Policy Public program. Designed with Jeffrey Louie.

Amplify(Her) is the first zine by and for undocumented women of the Asian diaspora. We designed and illustrated this zine around submissions from artists and writers, working directly with RAISE and DRUM organizers. Amplify(Her) was launched in September 2016 at the Asian American Writers’ Workshop, with readings by contributors and editors of the zine.
