A conversation and highlight about creative work and projects as a resident in the Denver Metro Area.


University of Minnesota - Twin Cities · Oct 26, 2022University of Minnesota - Twin Cities · Oct 26, 2022

Honoring the legacy of Karin L. Larson and her contribution to the College of Continuing education at the University of Minnesota.


Being the very first graduate student board member in Northrop Auditorium's history. This role opens up the chance to gain knowledge and insights by actively participating in advisory board meetings and events, all while getting to know the inner workings and structure of the organization. The primary aim is to contribute towards achieving the organization's goals.


As part of my practicum for graduate program, I am collaborating with Northrop's engagement team on cultural programming as role of project advisor, for the lobby event which will precede Northrops' presentation of 10,000 Dreams: A Celebration of Asian Choreography, co-curated by Final Bow for Yellowface’s Phil Chan, featuring The Washington Ballet, BalletMet, and Oakland Ballet Company on April 12 and 13, 2024.


While the program onstage is centered on ballet, we see the pre-show event as a chance to engage with artists and organizations across diverse artistic disciplines, highlighting Minnesota's rich cultural history. Our goals include building meaningful relationships with Twin Cities Asian and Asian American arts organizations, educating audiences on Asian and Asian American arts, particularly focusing on Hmong cultural contributions, and fostering a sense of community among our audience members. 


Core concepts around equity, diversity, and social justice. Deepening understanding of our own identities and how to work towards allyship and advocacy in our roles.
