ST. PAUL, Minn. — Led by Pan Asian Arts Alliance, and sponsored by the Landmark Sunday Series, local arts and dance groups come together to celebrate Asian Pacific American Heritage Month with a day of family fun.
The Pan Asian Arts Festival will be held Sunday, May 17, 2014, from Noon to 5 p.m. at the Landmark Center, 75 West 5th Street, St. Paul, MN 55102. The event is free and open to the public.
With more than 40 Asian folk dance performances representing the diversity of the Twin Cities APIA communities, the event is a cultural exchange through the performing arts, along with a Hmong Wearable Arts Exhibition, a Pan Asian Youth Animation Installation; and Asian craft makings, face painting, and carnival games, making origami, lanterns, traditional hats and masks.
The Bicultural Healthy Living Campaign will also be introduced at the event. The program focuses on the ability of immigrants and refugees to bridge two cultures, the American mainstream culture and their culture of origin, into one that allows them to live healthfully and happily.
This unique project is sponsored in collaboration through an Advisory Committee comprised of members from Asian Media Access, the Minnesota State Arts Board’s Arts and Cultural Legacy Fund, Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, and St. Paul CulturalSTAR.
