TAAF, Panda Express invest over $500,000 into AAPI artists

Last week, Panda Express revealed a $1 million grant to The Asian American Foundation (TAAF) to elevate AAPI representation. Now, TAAF, Panda Express, The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation and the Sundance Institute are teaming up to provide over $500,000 in funds for a fellowship and scholarship to elevate emerging AAPI talent.

This year, six artists were accepted into the fellowship which includes a $20,000 unrestricted grant for each to fund their projects plus additional, customized support from the Institute.

An additional six emerging artists will also receive TAAF/Sundance scholarships this year that will allow them to enroll in a live online course of their unique discipline, receive a Creator+ Sundance Collab membership to access Master Classes, participate in exclusive networking and community-building events, and receive guidance from their Sundance Collab Advisors on their projects.
