Hi, it’s nice to meet you.
This is Life With Bianca, a newsletter about figuring shit out, one day at a time.
For now, I want this space to be part commentary on both the mundane and transformative experiences of my life, part list of resources to share with my community, and part notes from my art studio, but most importantly an intentional space to practice vulnerability away from the performative pressures of the public algorithm.
Stay up to date with my life, my work, my art, and the things that are helping me do it all. You won’t have to worry about missing anything. Every new edition of the newsletter goes directly to your inbox.
I’m Bianca Nozaki-Nasser. I’m an LA-based, queer, Japanese-Lebanese-Syrian artist, designer, writer, and educator. When it really comes down to it though, I do cultural work.
Born to a Syrian-Lebanese father and Japanese American mother, my work draws on my experience navigating familial legacy, transnational culture, material language, and the politics of artifacts. I’ve participated in several artist residencies including Activation Residency in New York and Level Ground in Los Angeles. Most recently, I debuted my work in my first solo exhibition In These Times.
For my institutional J-O-B - I’m the Strategy & Creative Director at 18MR, a national digital-first Asian American advocacy organization. I work with grassroots organizers to build a digital political home for Asian Americans, and build campaigns to mobilize over 170,000 members to take action on social issues.
I also cofounded the Antiracist Classroom (antiracistclassroom.com), Rad Organizing (radorganizing.com), and was a core organizer at amwa (amwa.work).
