Spring Speaker 2017

APAC’s annual spring speaker event happened this past Sunday! Thanks to everyone who helped make this a success, especially our amazing panelists!

The event was a workshop followed by a moderated panel and audience questions at the Block Museum Auditorium, with a break in between for sushi and other refreshments! The panelists discussed their work and how they relate art and other media to political discourse. Scroll through the photos below for more details!

Co-Programming Chair Jessica really likes the booklet she made as a part of the Sad Asian Girls workshop led by Olivia Park!

This picture is misleading! Jess is happy about her cool Sad Asian Girls sticker!
