Celebrasia to feature diverse Asian cultures


The final Asian Pacific American Heritage Month event, Celebrasia, will take place at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 13, in Pearce Hall room 127. 

The Asian Cultural Organization at Central Michigan University hosts the festivity every year to showcase the countries and cultures encompassed in Asia and Asian-American heritage.

Jian Jiji Lee, president of the Asian Cultural Organization, said Celebrasia will have a “little bit of everything.”

Celebrasia will feature a variety of presentations, demonstrations and performances, including a modern dance performance and a fashion show to highlight traditional cultural clothing. There will also be singing performances and a taekwondo demonstration to show Asian cultural diversity. 

The event is free and open to the public. Snacks will be provided for attendees. 

The night is intended to highlight cultural diversity by showing the different ways the Asian and Asian-American communities celebrate their traditions and culture, said Tiffany Nguyen, head of the Celebrasia committee.

"Celebrasia is important because it allows us to share our culture," Nguyen said. "It also allows us to bring up different social issues in a modern and entertaining way."
