Heritage 365 Cultural Experience APIDA Heritage Celebration
March 25 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree
The Heritage365 Initiative observes the cultural heritage and history beyond the month and recognizes such heritage month from a year-long format. This Heritage365 will focus on celebrating the Asian, Pacific Islander, Desi-American (APIDA) culture at Johns Hopkins University.
The APIDA Cultural Experience will feature Stephanie Sajor and Eddy M. Gana Jr., also known as Steady. They are spoken word artists and community organizers based in Los Angeles. They are founders of Sunday Jump, a community open mic series in Historic Filipinotown, and are leaders of KmB/Pro-People Youth, a progressive grassroots organization.
Since meeting at UC Irvine, they have performed their poetry, facilitated workshops, and delivered keynotes on the radio, television, and stages across the nation. As organizers, they believe that the arts serve as an important avenue for personal growth, developing community activists, and ultimately, greater social change.
This event is hosted by the Office of Multicultural Affairs.
