Until May 23rd is RECLAIMING OUR ROOTS: APA arts activism  from the 1960s on. at the Kearny Street Workshop. This event brings KSW to the very street from which it takes its name, bringing the past and the present together through a multidisciplinary presentation of literature, music, and visual art. 

On March 16th and 17th, Live Oak Park in Berkeley hosts the Himalayan Fair. Both days start at 10 am and run until the early evening. All donations and raffle proceeds received this year will support efforts to send aid to Nepal after now, two devastating back to back earthquakes. They will also host a prayer each day of the Fair to remember the people of Nepal. 

Next Wednesday, join the Teach in to Free West Papau in Oakland or in SF on Thursday, May 21 at 518 Valencia Street at 6 pm for Free West Papau as we think about the questions “What does self-determination look like for West Papua and other indigenous peoples? How does the struggle for West Papua’s independence connect with other third world liberation movements?” we learn about its history and its struggle.

Also next Thursday May 21st from 7 to 8:30 pm join us for the opening of The State of the State: Contemporary Filipino/American art in the Bay Area at the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco.
