The SHOCK is here!!!!!
Every year, Columbia University’s Asian American Alliance hosts a charity showcase called cultureSHOCK to highlight APIA (Asian-American Pacific Islander-American) talent. There will be a full dinner from Asian restaurants nearby, a fashion show (there will be spotlight models who will share their stories of what they will “redefine”), and performances from Columbia groups and from outside, like rappers Awkwafina and Anik Khan — all for just $12 VIP (better seats and a chance to win two $25 book culture gift cards) or $10 for general admission.
CultureSHOCK seeks to break through stereotypes and become a platform for artistic expression. This year our theme is cultureSHOCK: RE(DEFINE), which reflects our desire to take agency over our own identities as Asian Americans. We hope that cultureSHOCK will provide a spotlight for celebrating Asian America’s intersecting identities.
