UC Davis Vietnamese Student Association - 31st Annual Culture Show titled Subtext: Đọc Phần Ghi Chú (2013)

UC Davis Vietnamese Student Association - 31st Annual Culture Show titled Subtext: Đọc Phần Ghi Chú (2013)


31st Annual Culture Show titled Subtext: Đọc Phần Ghi Chú (2013)

About:

 

University of Califronia, Davis's Vietnamese Student Association invites you to come watch and enjoy its 31st Annual Culture Show titled Subtext: Đọc Phần Ghi Chú as it explores Vinh's struggle with understanding his identity, family, and place in the world. Don't miss out on this opportunity to see amazing acting, dancing, and singing! 

Every year the proceeds from VSA's Culture Show goes directly to its annual philanthropy. This year, that philanthropy is Blue Dragon whose mission is to help kids in crisis by providing housing, education, medical and psychological services, and other great resources. 

Synopsis: 

 

Have you met Vinh? He's a 20-something Vietnamese male and, if his parents plan goes well, he'll inherit their newspaper company, the Viet Chronicles. If he had an OKCupid account (he doesn't) it would say he spends time out with nature, enjoys the comfort of a book, and is 5'8" (when in reality is only 5'7.5.") Oh, and somewhere in that mix of facts it would mention that he's on the Autism spectrum. 


Who are we? 

 

We are an organization on campus that strives to promote Vietnamese culture on and around campus to everyone interested in the Vietnamese culture; share current events and social issues surrounding the Vietnamese worldwide; and provide philanthropy to Vietnamese-based organizations year-round. We strive to continue the Vietnamese traditions, for fear of it becoming extinct as the new generation replaces the old. We hope to continue to strengthen and continue the Vietnamese language and culture! We can only do so with the participation and support of members!

The Vietnamese Student Association has been a club at UC Davis since 1981, and is among the most active Vietnamese Student Association in Northern California.

Fun Facts:
VSA is a affiliate of a bigger organization called the UVSA of northern California. We work with other affiliate VSA groups in Northern California, on charity events and community events, to not only better and hold on the Vietnamese culture on our campus but also in our surrounding community.  Although VSA is a cultural club, we are also big on performing dance through our contribution in performing cultural dance around campus at big events such as APCN and Picnic Day.
