Workshops feature at festival
Does immigration to New Zealand mean a slide down the dragon from the head to the tail?
Asian community leaders and young adults will discuss current issues facing the community at the Waitakere Moon Festival this weekend.
Organised by the Office of Ethnic Affairs and Asia 2000 in association with the Waitakere City Council, Families in Transition: Cultures in Collision consists of two workshops, designed to raise awareness and provoke discussion on topics affecting Asians in New Zealand.
The workshops are an innovative addition to the festival and aim to push the boundaries of cultural celebrations in New Zealand. Asia Down Under producer Melissa Lee will be convening the Enter the Dragon panel with panellists Sue Lim, Kitty Chiu, Kenneth Wang and Dr Samson Tse. Discussion will focus on pre-migration expectations and their impact on families and communities.
The Asian Generation X panel of young adults will invite discussion on topics affecting youth such as maintaining culture and traditional expectations while integrating with New Zealand culture. Other topics include Chinese culture, civilisation and economy and why people living there can justifiably be proud of who they are and their place in the world.
Held on Saturday 25th; 11am for Asian Generation X and 1pm for Enter the Dragon, more information is available at www.waitakere.govt.nz or call Waitakere City Council Call Centre 839 0400.
