EXCITING NEWS for Asian Canadians
The organizing committee of
Asian Heritage Month, Canadian Foundation for Asian Culture (Central
Ontario) Inc., is preparing a Virtual Museum of Asian Canadian

Through providing opportunities
to foster the recognition and appreciation of the diverse cultures
of Asian Canadian society, we not only promote Asian Canadian
cultural expressions, but also discover whether the cross-cultural
encounters between Asian Canadians and the rest of Canada can
forge new cultural expressions.
- Feature contemporary cultural
expression e.g. visual arts, theatre, video, music, dance, literature,
etc., created by Asian Canadian professional artists and writers,
and school and university students.
- Show representations of how
the Asian Canadian communities live and express their cultural
identity in Canada in the form of photographs, videos, journals
and so on.
- Provide cultural information
related to festivals, especially on how Asian Canadians celebrate
their ethnic festivals, and the Asian Heritage Month Festival
and events. Where possible, we will feature festival pamphlets,
- Exhibit cultural traditions
and storytelling, especially capturing the tales of the grandparents
This initiative is made possible
by the generous support of the Canadian Heritage "Gateway"
