Event Description
In celebration of Asian Pacific Islander Heritage Month, all are invited to Beyond Yellowface, a roundtable discussion with Asian American creatives whose work has been featured on stage, screen, and in the media. Moderated by Francis Tanglao Aguas, Westphal College's Associate Dean of DEI, join us for a far-reaching conversation that delves into the intersections of the work of Rankin Scholar and choreographer Phil Chan, Broadway costume designer Harriet Jung, and former Philadelphia Inquirer journalist and filmmaker Jennifer Lin and how they have navigated their careers and the challenges they have faced as Asian American creative professionals. The evening will feature a sneak peek of documentary, Beyond Yellowface by Lin as well as short film, Ballet des Porcelaines, featuring choreography by Chan and costumes by Jung.
