Related Tactics, Nourishing Power

Drawing inspiration from the role potlucks have played within queer Asian American social justice groups as a site of connection, Nourishing Power offers an array of takeaway tools for gathering (prompts, objects, recipes for action, questions) that audiences can carry into the world and enact. Like a potluck, these tools will encourage people to bring something to share with their gatherings to sustain and nourish interconnectivity and empathy.

About Related Tactics

Related Tactics (Michele Carlson, Weston Teruya, and Nate Watson) is a multidisciplinary collective of artists of color creating work together at the intersection of race and culture. Formed in 2015, Related Tactics projects utilize a variety of modes— sculpture, writing, print, and social engagement, and curatorial tactics—to explore the connections between art, movements for equity & justice, and the public. We create opportunities to gather, amplify, and connect a multiplicity of voices in our work that draws upon community-facing, site-specific research to invite reflection, social action, and envision a more just society.


We have produced projects with Corning Museum of Glass, USF Thacher Gallery, Berkeley Art Center, Museum of Capitalism, Southern Exposure, Houston Center for Contemporary Craft, and ICA San Jose. We have been supported through a Rainin Arts Fellowship, Kala’s Print Public, a CoLAB residency project with Montalvo Arts Center, a residency at The Luminary, and grants from Ruth Foundation for the Arts and Craft Research Fund. Our creative publication, Shelf Life, was published by Sming Sming Books and our writing has been featured in the Brooklyn Rail and The Hopkins Review.
