The AAPI experience in Charlotte via art

Jeff Cravotta/Photo: Jeff Cravotta

On this edition of Charlotte Talks ...

A conversation on being Asian American or Pacific Islander in Charlotte as experienced and expressed through the arts.

We’ll be joined by a novelist, a dancer, a musician and a visual artist, to find out how they remain connected to their heritage through their distinct artistic mediums.

Art reaches us on an emotional level and is a perfect avenue to experience and understand different cultures and the difficulties they face in a compassionate way.

We meet Charlottean artists who are AAPI and discuss their art and heritage, when Charlotte Talks.


  • Kim Jones, dance professor at UNC Charlotte
  • Brian Arreola, professor of voice at UNC Charlotte
  • MyLoan Dinh, visual artist
  • Andrew Hartley, distinguished professor of Shakespeare at UNC Charlotte
