Where I Belong is an event, co-hosted by Yellow Chair Collective (YCC) and Asian Mental Health Project (AMHP), to re-connect our Asian American community to ourselves and each other.
By News Desk
Intended to be a joyful three-dimensional experience of the book, Where I Belong: Healing Trauma and Embracing Asian American Identity, guests will be encouraged to contemplate what it means to belong through community art experiences, tasty food & drink, an art gallery, and a curated line-up of musicians, panelists, and special guests. “We hope our community can leave our event with hope, healing, and the certainty that we all belong here.”
Panelists include Carrie Zhang (moderator), Ryan Alexander Holmes, Angeline Dy, Phi Do, and Dr. Andrew Murphy. Storytelling will be led by Samana Budhathoki and Lowhi. AAPI Mental Health Book Author Interview will be moderated by Alyssa “Lia” Mancao, featuring authors Soo Jin Lee and Linda Yoon. Performances will be held by Jason Chu, Lowhi, Simha, and Take Kare. Vendors include Covry, Gyopo, Mindy’s Crochet, and Uprisers.
A voluntary donation of $5 per entry is suggested, but is not mandatory for attendance. The event is open to the public and free, and any donations would be greatly appreciated. Register at this link.
