The month of May, declared Asian Heritage Month by the Government of Canada, is a time to highlight the contributions of Asian Canadians to Canadian society. This is the 16th year that Asian Heritage Month activities will be carried out in Manitoba.
Since the inaugural Asian Heritage Month in 1993, cities across Canada have held annual festivities. In Manitoba, the Asian Heritage Society of Manitoba consisting of representatives from the Japanese, Chinese, Indian, Vietnamese, Indo-Chinese, Korean, Filipino organizations, have planned a variety of activities to share the Asian cultures with other Canadians.
We plan to make May 2018 the best Asian Heritage Month yet, with a variety of performance and educational events that highlight the talents of the Asian communities in Manitoba. Community involvement is key to the success of our goals and we are reaching out to preferred businesses and organizations to be supporters of Asian Heritage Month 2018.
In the past 16 years, the Asian Heritage Society has successfully brought performers, artists, dancers, writers, musicians, and educators together – reaching approximately 3000 audience members and participants over the course of the month.
If your organization is interested in contributing to Asian Heritage Society of Manitoba, please view our AHS Sponsorship 2018 for more information.
