In conjunction with the exhibit kip fulbeck: part asian, 100% hapa, the Oregon Nikkei Endowment has planned a Hapa Diversity Workshop, facilitated by Dr. Linda Isako Angst, Cultural Anthropologist of Japan.

Who are you? How do you get to know someone you perceive as different? How do we understand who we are in relation to others? What assumptions do we make about "us" and "them" in the course of everyday life? Taking its cue from the perspective of cultural anthropology, this workshop will ask participants to think—and then unthink—assumptions we hold about ourselves and thereby examine the stereotypes we create about cultural others. While we celebrate the diversity each of us holds as culturally situated individuals, we must also learn how to honor and support the proliferation of ethnicities within our midst.

Thursday, October 20, 5pm, at the Oregon Nikkei Legacy Center. Free, but pre-registration is required.

The traveling version of kip fulbeck: part asian, 100% hapa is organized by the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles, California, and is supported, in part, by the James Irvine Foundation. Programming was made possible in part by a grant from Oregon Humanities.
