GOAL: We are creating a team of bilingual/multilingual individuals that will walk around Times Square and other areas of New York City to pass out flyers and talk about ALLEGIANCE, specifically targeting Japanese and other international tourists. We hope these conversations will encourage the tourists to buy tickets to ALLEGIANCE and support this important show.

PAY: Both training and time "on duty" on the streets will pay $25/hour. 

TIME DEMANDS: We will likely send you out in pairs for 2-4 hours at a time, 1-2 times a week between the hours of 10am and 6pm depending on needs and availability. 

TRAINING: Prior to your beginning, we will have a training session where we will discuss tactics/protocol and provide you with ALLEGIANCE flyers and t-shirts.

Welcome to National Asian Artists Project

NAAP is a community of artists, educators, administrators, community leaders, and professionals. It is a not-for-profit organization that recognizes the need to build bridges between the work of artists of Asian descent, and the many communities that the work can serve, from underserved primary school students to seasoned arts patrons. 



Our Mission

National Asian Artists Project (NAAP) exists to be a leader in educating, cultivating, and stimulating audiences and artists—current and future—through showcasing exceptional work by vibrant artists of Asian descent. Art constantly evolves, and NAAP strives to command a place at the fore with a uniquely compelling American voice.

Our Goals

NAAP believes that artists of Asian descent have many vital roles to play in the fostering of American communities.

  • Through thoughtful educational programming, we seek to present the richness of theatre arts to underserved children, fostering creative self-discovery and expression.
  • Support the artistic growth of theatre artists of Asian descent through professional employment opportunities.
  • Build and cultivate new local and national audiences that encourage patronage and participation in the arts, including predominantly Asian communities unaccustomed to playing a role in the local or national arts dialogue.
  • Capture and archive stories of prominent artists of Asian descent that they may be made available for future generations from which to learn and inspire.
