Since 1996, the Vancouver Asian Heritage Month Society has dedicated itself to promoting the inclusion and social integration of Pan-Asian Canadian communities through its explorASIAN festival and programming. Every year, VAHMS honours three individuals, community organizations, or educational institutions representing Pan-Asian communities that have made significant contributions to this vision.
And we need your help!
VAHMS will be accepting nominations for honourees from now until May 22nd. If you know of an individual, community organization, or education institution that deserves recognition, we want to hear from you.
Honourees for the Pan-Asian Recognition Awards will be selected for:
• Leadership or support for Pan-Asian arts, education, or culture
• Significant contribution towards social integration of Asian-Canadian communities through cross-cultural, or multicultural exchange
• Achievement or contributions to promote Pan-Asian cultural heritage
• Enhancement of multicultural identity, education, or experience through cultural or artistic expression
• Collaboration with individuals or institutions promoting the advancement of inclusive learning
Please note that you can nominate more than one individual or organization and that honourees will be selected by an independent selection committee appointed by VAHMS.
