May 4th 2024 – AAPI Heritage Month Celebration in Providence, RI

Saturday, May 4th, 2024

12:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. 

Asian American Pacific Islander Month is a big deal at the Cultural Society.  It was this time last year that we launched the “Uniting AAPI Community for Change” art at Washington Park Library’s outside wall. Ever since then, we have launched multiple projects to promote and uplift the voices of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in Rhode Island, including the conception of the AAPI History Museum.  This year, we take this opportunity to unveil our mobile museum at this celebration! 

For 2024, our theme is “Asian American Activists That Changed History”. In which we have dedicated an art of 12 past Asian American activists to be highlighted with the unveiling of our AAPI Mobile History Museum to the public. It will be an exciting time to see how all of these pieces come together!
