Your Story on Stage!

We want to hear your story, or your mom’s, dad’s, auntie, uncle, friend, neighbor…Tell us about your journey – or theirs – to California. What were the feelings around that journey, before, during, after? Who were the characters involved?

We’ll select three of these stories to be developed to short pieces to be shown on the Playhouse stage at the end of the Festival.

And we aim to share everyone’s story too – online and at the Playhouse.  We’re happy to receive video’s, MP3’s or typed stories.  Download the info here: Tell us your story!, and be sure to complete the Waiver Form, and send that to us with your story submission.

Free Workshops, Screenings and Performances

We’re offering Free Workshops in Martial Arts, Chinese Opera and the Unique Scholar Program and there’ll be film screenings, performances, discussions and demonstrations, so come back soon for more details!
