Help Create Moving Mountains 2019

Workshop proposals accepted through June 28

SEARAC is currently accepting workshop proposals for our second biennial Moving Mountains: A Southeast Asian American Equity Summit, which will take place on October 2-4 in Sacramento, CA, and will bring together 175-200 Southeast Asian American changemakers, from college students, to community leaders, to elders, from across the United States.

We invite you to submit your vision that keeps in mind our convening’s overall theme of Southeast Asian American self-determination and at least one of our four guiding pillars: inspiration, connection, innovation, and activation. You’ll be able to choose from one of seven workshop themes: capacity building; community engagement; mind, body, and soul; policy and advocacy; diversity, inclusion, and racial equity; artistic expression; and big ideas. And you’ll also select one of four session formats, ranging from a multiday 180-minute deep dive to a 30-minute group reflection.
Proposals will be accepted through Friday, June 28, at 11:59 PT.

SEARAC is proud to unveil our motif for Moving Mountains 2019. Created in collaboration with graphic artist Tien Pham, the design pays homage to the waves of refugees who established the Southeast Asian American legacy and identity here in the United States. It also incorporates themes of unity, movement, and nature as powerful sources of healing and connection.

We encourage the creative community to propose innovative workshops that showcase how different artistic mediums can connect, inspire, and activate. Send us your ideas here!
