Since 1993, riksha has been dedicated to promoting artistic and literary works by and about Asian Americans. riksha is a Chicago-based organization, however we are interested in work from around the U.S. and overseas. In conjunction with our artistic/literary bent, riksha spreads the word about relevant social issues that impact our communities. We also stage performances and lend a hand in a wide range of community organizations. Recently, riksha officially became a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization.
