The South Asian Experience project is a record and archive the varied lived experiences of South Asians in King County and beyond, drawing from several established programs to cull a collection specific to the issues of 2020 and 2021. This includes the COVID-19 pandemic, Black Lives Matter and racial justice activism, mental health, and other time-sensitive perspectives on world events.
This video archive retains a valuable piece of history for South Asian communities in King County by preserving the films and dialogues that, in real-time, dealt with these historic events through a South Asian lens. There is urgency in collecting and preserving these dialogues as they happen to maintain full and authentic representations of this period in time.
The South Asian Experience is funded by 4Culture Heritage Projects.
