OUR STORY

Growing social empowerment,
for and by Southeast Asia Diaspora.

Community is spoken here at SEAD. We are literary and visual storytellers redefining what community development looks like for the Southeast Asian diaspora. We believe storytelling is a powerful tool for how we get there and language is the entry point that keeps us rooted in our peoplehood.

THE DIASPORA MAP

SEAD’s Diaspora Map is a work-in-progress hub for Southeast Asian communities seeking culturally-relevant resources. SEAD believes through this map we can better inform, connect and engage diaspora communities by organizing resources, happenings and stories that will eventually grow across global communities to understand spatial relationships and patterns that tie our collective consciousness and social fabric.
