As AYPAL moves forward making positive changes in our schools, what grounds our work, inspires our youth and allows us to outreach to the larger API community is our May Arts Festival that will be on Thursday, May 17, 2012! PLEASE SAVE THE DATE!
The youth have been busy learning, practicing and creating various performing arts: cultural dance, hip-hop dance, spoken word, and guerrilla theater. We’ve learned that through art, youth learn ethnic traditions and histories, while finding creative and empowering ways to discuss current issues and express themselves! Performances will include Cambodian, Mien, Filipino and Pacific Islander dances, guerilla theater, videos, and more.
WHAT: AYPAL’S 14th annual May Arts Festival
WHERE: OACC – 388 Ninth Street, Suite 290, Oakland, CA 94607
WHEN: Thursday, May 17, 2012. Doors open at 5:30, show starts at 6 pm.
Please bring your check books to participate in our silent auction in the lobby area!
$3 for youth; $5-$20 for adults *** No one turned away for lack of funds! ***
Our youth need your help to have an amazing event! We need to raise $5000 before May 17th to help pay for cultural teachers, costumes, and other event expenses! Donate here to support youth art activism!
