APAHW “Revolution” 2014

APAHW 4b

The 2014 APAHW board presents the theme for UPenn’s 22nd Asian Pacific American Heritage Week — “Revolution”. This year, the week-long celebration of Asian Pacific American Heritage will run from Nov 2nd to Nov 8th. In line with this year’s theme, the board has been working to bring in exciting speakers and explore new possibilities in the line-up of events. But that doesn’t mean APAHW’s best traditions are forgotten. Big Asian, Extravaganza, ASAM talk, and Alumni dinner will be back with full force and renewed energy. With this year’s theme, Revolution, we hope to provoke and inspire students to step out of familiar grounds and explore uncharted territories. We want people to think differently for their future. What we want to build is a forward-looking paradigm. Yet we cannot achieve that without a reflective look to the past and honest discussions about the present. With our event timeline connecting the past, present and future, we wish that students can draw strength from the past, focus on the present and envision a brand-new future.

Stay tuned.
