Photographer and brand director William Nguyen and executive producer Justin Lee are teaming up to create “Bridge the Gap,” a Web3 community that will serve as a safe haven for young Asian creatives while also providing educational programming.

Children of Asian immigrants can use Bridge the Gap to have an open conversation about their cultural dualities struggles, the racism they face as an Asian minority, as well as learn from and interact with the Asian American community.

The duo is also in partnership with the Asian Canadian online media platform ‘The RepresentASIAN Project’, Far East Movement’s Kev Nish, Lions Share podcast, and creative director Silas Lee.

A docuseries of the same name will follow the forums and workshops, with each episode highlighting a story and perspective from a prominent Asian creative. The first episode, titled “Every inch of it was created by us,” was directed and produced entirely by Asians, including a chair designed by one of Lee’s Filipino students and music composed by a Korean producer.
