ImprovisAsian Festival (2021)

Velvet’s insights and approach to navigating sensitive situations around race, boundaries, and safe spaces were very valuable to us as we tackled those issues during the organization of the ImprovisAsian Festival. He gave us a clearer idea of the approaches we could take when dealing with these issues.

He both empowers you through and grounds you to the truth of the matter at hand. As a fellow person of color, Velvet was supportive and compassionate to our cause and we walked away from our discussion feeling empowered.
