SIS Productions, an all-volunteer company created to provide leadership opportunities and decision-making roles for Asian American women, is launching a campaign to Celebrate Women through all the work that we do – on stage, behind the scenes, and in the community. SIS hopes to inspire people of all genders, ages and races to re-imagine how women are valued in our culture. Envision what might be possible if women are appreciated for their accomplishments over their looks, size or weight. Where young girls are taught to reach their full-potential. Where women past a certain age are sought after for their wisdom and advice rather than fading into invisibility.
In celebration of Black History Month, SIS Productions is one of many partners led by the brilliance of conceptual artist, Natasha Marin. Her Black Imagination Sites of Power centers and amplifies Black Voices. SIS will be sharing out videos throughout the month along with a collective of arts and cultural organizations to highlight Black Brilliance.
Conceived by Natasha Marin
Directed by Jay O’Leary-Woods

ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
As a whole, the on-going Black Imagination project exists to make space— space for intersectionality, nuance, and the full range of humanity that is Blackness. Now, from the safety of our devices, anywhere in the world, we can create our own Black Imagination experiences online. Sites of Power is about validation– being seen and heard. Sites of Power is about healing from generations of invalidation and erasure. Sites of Power is about community. And community is true power.
If you’d like to get email updates about the campaign including special event info, discount opportunities, and chances to honor the women in your life, we invite you to sign up.
