Celebrate Asian Heritage Month - Appreciation of Asian Poetry and Music Welcomes You

May 22, 2017

 

 

On May 21st 2002, the Parliament of Canada declared May as Asian Heritage Month in recognition and acknowledgement of the long and rich history of Asian-Canadians. The Canadian Government also recognizes the contributions of Canadians of Asian descent who have helped to improve the quality of life and build Canada, the best and most multicultural country in the world.

 

To celebrate Asian Heritage Month in Richmond, WS Immigrant and Multicultural Services Society, World Poetry and Richmond Public Library will organize Celebrate Asian Heritage Month - Appreciation of Asian Poetry and Music event. Thirty selected poets and artists from local communities have joined forces to present a series of poem recitation and cultural performances. Any Asian language is encouraged for this event.
