AAPI Cultural Showcase
May 8 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Asia is a hugely diverse continent made up of 48 different countries, each with their own unique history and culture. The AAPI showcase is a collaboration between multiple Asian affiliated student organizations on campus and is designed for AAPI identifying students to celebrate their culture through music and dance. The main goal of this event is to provide a safe space for the AAPI community to share traditional art forms from their respective countries with the rest of the student body. We also hope to increase representation of different AAPI countries and encourage individuals to be proud of their country of origin. Too often, Asian cultures are shunned in America, and many people grow up being ashamed of their heritage. However, by actively celebrating each country’s rich history and culture, the AAPI showcase will allow students to express their traditional customs in a manner that encourages both healing and acceptance.
