This expertly-curated event represented South Asian culture to a broad Bay Area audience
The 2022 event focused on a theme of “Humanity” by examining how the world tends to put people in boxes, categorizing and generalizing communities of different color, class, gender, and caste. The forums and conversations will examine and celebrate different points of view, while also recognizing that ultimately, it is a shared humanity that triumphs.
