Funded by a grant from the Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs, The Museum chose to focus its reintroduction event on celebrating Asian-American Pacific-Islander Heritage month by engaging the San Fernando Valley Asian/Pacific Islander businesses and neighbors who have become part of the fabric of the Valley.
Jackie Langa, Vice President of The Museum, explains: “It is The Museum’s role to give a central voice to the distinctive histories of all populations in the SFV whose cultures, races, religions and ideas contributed to the Valley’s character, growth and development.”
This festive and family friendly event will celebrate many diverse Asian cultures through their art, music, dance, food and more at The Museum’s new location on the grounds of the beautiful Rancho Cordillera del Norte in Northridge. Festival highlights will include vendors’ booths, food trucks, demonstrations, onstage entertainment, children’s art workshops and the opportunity to visit the Museum and its exhibits. Visitors will be offered an immersive experience.
Later in the evening the Museum will also present an indoor theater screening and community discussion of Aimee Long’s film “A Shot Through The Wall.” The community’s discussion will be directed by a panel to discuss the film’s relevance to the diversely-ethnic SFV Pan-Asian/Pacific communities. Reservations for the film will be required.
Ms. Langa further explains: “We are trying to direct the conversation to celebrate SFV Asian-American/Pacific Islander residents in their specific neighborhoods for their day-to-day strengths and importance to the growth of the Valley while also examining their challenges as an ethnic community.”
