Hyphens returns this year with the multi-talented poet, fiction-writer, essayist and musician Dao Strom in an event exploring histories of the Vietnamese American diaspora and creative practice in sustaining political resistance and communal memory.

Dao Strom is an artist who works with three “voices”—written, sung, visual—to explore hybridity and the intersection of personal and collective histories. Strom is the co-founder of two collaborative art projects: She Who Has No Master(s), a collective of women writers of the Vietnamese diaspora; and de-canon, a literary + social art + publishing project highlighting books and works by writers of color.
