Sharing Comfort and Care: Intergenerational Story-Mapping in the Cambodian, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander Communities | SEARAC, UCIrvine, EPIC, The Cambodian Family
June 3, 2021 @ 9:30 pm - 11:00 pm EDT
Please join us for the Sharing Comfort and Care project, which showcases intergenerational and intercultural sharing of stories related to migration, health care, and food for two of the most underrepresented groups within the Asian American and Pacific Islander communities, specifically Cambodians and Native Hawaiian Pacific Islanders (NHPI).
California is home to the largest Cambodian American community and second largest NHPI community in the United States. The Sharing Comfort and Care project team, based at UC Irvine, have partnered with two community-based organizations (The Cambodian Family and Empowering Pacific Islander Communities) to mentor college students, alums, and graduate students from across Southern California and beyond to conduct oral histories with community elders, create digital story-maps, and share meaningful and healing recipes.
