Pan-Asian Pacific Islander Perspectives Festival, March 25-30, 2013

The Pan-Asian Pacific Islander Perspectives week-long festival, sponsored by the HSU Asian Pacific Islander American Student Alliance (A.P.A.S.A.) will gather together, on one common calendar, different events around pan-Asian Pacific Islander (API) ethnicity, and share pan-API resources in Humboldt.

Most events are free and open to the public.

The events throughout the week highlight some different API people in Humboldt County, their perspectives and experiences. It will bring us together to enjoy different cultures, draw attention to the local API community (which can be invisible to many), and to have opportunities for dialogue around what it means to be "Asian Pacific Islander."

Come participate and enjoy music and dance performances, workshops, lectures, art showings, and dance classes, including:

  • Tuesday, March 26, 5 pm, HSU Science B 133: Key Note by Betty Chinn: "Turning Hatred Into Hope, Perspectives of a Survivor of the Cultural Revolution"
  • Thursday, March 28, 7:30 pm, HSU Jolly Giant Commons: Non-Stop Bhangra and Dohlrhythms Dance Company, live from SF!

For a full calendar of events, visit the online Zine at http://agoile.wix.com/pan-api. On the online Zine, you will also enjoy articles, art, and sharing of reflections highlighting the API community in Humboldt, as well as API resources.
