Things We Like: 7th Annual New York City Asian American Student Conference
Have a minute? Like free food? (Who doesn’t?! That was kind of a trick question.) Then take a moment to check out the video above and learn more about why YOU, Kollaboration New York supporter, should come to the 7th annual New York City Asian American Student Conference (NYCAASC), En Route, taking place on Saturday, April 27.
We here at Kollaboration New York are all about supporting up-and-coming artists in their pursuit of a career in the entertainment industry — and as a result, it should come as no surprise that we’re fans (and friends) of anyone who’s looking to help bolster the Asian American community in ways both big and small.
NYCAASC is a joint effort between several of New York City’s most vibrant campuses, including New York University, Columbia University, Barnard College, Hunter College, Baruch College, and City College, with aims of bringing a collection of amazing workshops and speakers right here to your front stoop (er, apartment door?).
Come out to learn more about critical issues facing the Asian American community in every industry, including politics, entertainment, the work force, and more. You’ll also get a chance to rub shoulders with some influential Asian American figures, including keynote speaker (and writer and activist) Helen Zia, comedienne and past KNY show host Jen Kwok, “Yellowface” playwright David Henry Hwang, and yes, even YouTube sensation Joseph Vincent.
Registration is absolutely free, breakfast and lunch will be provided, and you’ll even get a chance to take a gander at a talent show of some great up-and-coming Asian American artists at the end of the day.
Til next time, keep a close eye on our site, on Facebook and on Twitter in the coming weeks as we keep you posted on the latest audition news. Cheers to a fantastic season, and good luck, one and all!
