Aaina, which in Urdu means mirror, focuses on and celebrates the artistic work of and about South Asian women. The variety of media includes film, performances, visual art, workshops and speakers aimed at highlighting issues relevant to South Asian women. We are excited to bring you another great festival this year! In addition to the programs below, Chaya will be releasing its first ever zine publication â€“ a compilation of personal narratives, perspectives, and art to raise awareness about issues of violence and oppression in the South Asian community.
