National Asian Hertitage Month Symposium Recap

Symposium Coordinator Farah Fancy

The 2nd Annual Asian Heritage Month Symposium has come to a close and we have several people we’d like to thank and recognize for supporting VAHMS’ satellite working group conversation and presentations. First we would like to thank Musqueam Elder Larry Grant for participating as our Indigenous Observer and sharing his thoughts and stories with our working group. We also had three moderators, Esaine Mo, Ariadne Sawyer, and Phyllis Tang, who did a terrific job of leading our working group conversation.

Phyllis Tang also offered the symposium a fascinating presentation on the Interaction between Chinese Popular Music and Asian Heritage Elements in Music Production, and fellow VAHMS Director Jing Palad presented on VAHMS’ Interconnected project.

CBC Radio also did a French language piece covering the symposium, you can stream the entire piece by clicking the above image!

We will be sharing the results of the symposium as soon as they become available so stay tuned for more!
