NAAAP Detroit Asian Pacific American Heritage Month Celebration Blast!
DETROIT, MI – On May 14, 2017, National Association of Asian American Professionals (NAAAP) Detroit Chapter, collaborated with the Detroit Institute of Arts’ (DIA) auxiliary group Friends of Asian Arts and Cultures (FAAC) to celebrate the Asian Pacific American Heritage Month by connecting our community with an afternoon of live performance, workshop and Formosa Circus Art’s (FOCA) fun! This inspiring event included the unforgettable FOCA performance and workshop at 2:30pm, and a VIP Reception at 3:30pm.
The performance and workshop were open to the public, with general admission to the museum. It attracted large crowds of the community, including friends from Metro Detroit to the Rivera Court at DIA. The Formosa Circus Art (FOCA) group, hailing from Taiwan, brought acrobatic stunts with modern dance and live theater to create a unique stage presence for the audience in the Rivera Court at DIA. The FOCA performance on May 14th successfully offered a specialized arts professionalism platform for both NAAAP Detroit and the DIA to connect with our community.
The VIP Reception was held to celebrate Asian Pacific American Heritage Month and the collaboration between NAAAP Detroit and the DIA. We would like to express our deep gratitude to our distinguished corporate sponsors: General Motors, Chrysan Industries, Everprosper Health Insurance Service, and Universal Products. We would like to thank our partner organizations, community leaders and individuals for the continuous support and contribution.
NAAAP Detroit also expressed its gratitude to the many generous supporters and the very talented all-volunteer team of NAAAP members who contributed their time and talent to serve and bring this program to the Detroit community. We encourage APA professionals and friends of all disciplines, to join us to make this a vital, empowering and serving community. Please visit www.naaapdetroit.org for more information.
