Kira Simon-Kennedy

I help creative people do impactful and interesting things as the co-founder & director of China Residencies, a co-founder of Rivet, and an independent film producer.

I like writing guides, redistributing resources, and curating meme tactics.

These days I mostly 😷 in New York, and hope we can travel back to the 50+ places we work with in mainland China & Hong Kong soon. I have mixed feelings about twitter and instagram, but I'm always happy to mentor justice-oriented nice people with projects for the public good ~ the best way to get in touch if you want to work together is to email sk.kira {at} gmail.
