Bulletin Board: September 2018
Nadya Agrawal founded Kajal, a magazine that features art and opinions from the South Asian diaspora, and they’re having a relaunch party. Dance the night away on October 12 at Mad Tropical where South Asian DJs will be spinning and South Asian video artists will be showcasing their work.
