Longhouse Goes Global Panel

In this unprecedented time, CAAP is doing something unprecedented by going global.

It’s been a big year for Longhouse. Not only have we moved the program online, we’ve gone national for the first time in May. Now, for our third Longhouse of 2020, we are reach out to fellow international practitioners in the Asian diasporic theatre community.

We have an extraordinary line up of panelists from across the oceans:

Facilitated by Arisa Yura.

The panel will be discussing how they’ve been responding to this year’s challenges, new ideas, opportunities and ways of working that may have emerged. They’d also be sharing what it’s like running an organization that dedicates and advocates for Asian diasporic storytelling.

This event took place on Oct 10th.  You can watch the recording on CAAP's YouTube Channel.
