About the 2010 Smithsonian Folklife Festival:
For the first time in its 44-year history, the Smithsonian Folklife Festival, which will be held from June 23 through July 5, 2010 on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., will celebrate the Asian Pacific American community. Each year, over a million people attend the Festival, and millions more visit the Festival website or hear about it in national and global media outlets. Curator Phil Tajitsu Nash, who will be speaking at our Oct 14 gathering, will discuss how this historic government-sponsored celebration of APA music, dance, crafts and food also will provide an opportunity to gather oral histories of the local APA community that will be preserved for posterity in the official Smithsonian archives. Please contact pnash[at]umd[dot]edu if you have ideas for performers at the Festival. We also need your assistance today to raise $450,000, which is our small share of the high costs of showcasing our community's heritage and achievements on the National Mall next summer.
