We are excited to have Honolulu-based artist Jasper Wong for our next “Ask Me Anything” interview — Wednesday October 30th 1pm – 2pm PST. If you’re a member you can log into our Booooooom Slack Community and post questions to Jasper in the #ama channel ahead of time to make sure they get answered and, even better than that, you can also participate in the live chat with him on the 30th. If you’re not a member, you won’t be able to be part of the live chat but you can still send us your questions (either in the comments below, via email, Instagram or Twitter) and we will ask them on your behalf and publish the answers. If you want more info about becoming a member, head over here.
Jasper is the founder of the global arts festival POW! WOW!, which will celebrate its 10-year anniversary in February. He has created artwork for brands like Uniqlo, Microsoft, and Bloomingdales, and opened art spaces in Hong Kong and Hawaii. He is a connector and curator, in tune with current culture, and the rare blend of an artist with a business mind. If you have questions for Jasper—about any aspect of the festival, getting your work seen, working with brands, living doing what you love, anything—this is your chance to ask!
