BUFU (By us For us) is a collaborative living archive centered around (Pan)Asian Cultural and political relationships. The founders of the the project are a collective of queer, femme, and non-binary, black and East-Asian artists and organizers. Their goal is to facilitate a global conversation on the relationships between black and Asian diasporas, with an emphasis on building solidarity, de-centering whiteness, and resurfacing our deeply interconnected and complicated histories. They attempt to achieve this through collaborative programming, their visual archives, and through building long-term partnerships with collectives, organizations, and individuals.
BUFU is organizing a 4-week lead up of programming including Build with Us Sundays, building toward a final day-long gathering: sharing strategies, resources, skills between/on collectives. Focusing on how we build together through organizing, healing, nightlife, art, etc. All programming is free.
