We offer a wide range of activities including hands-on workshops, classes, and educational booths, as well as large-scale cultural exhibitions and festivals. Many of these events are held at the APCC building, but schools, museums, private companies, agencies, and other groups also request for us to come out to present or host an event. Participants learn from and interact with our Cultural Interpreters who are from these countries and speak the language and are highly experienced and knowledgeable, providing authentic teachings that are true and respectful of the culture and people. This community-based arts and culture exhibition features a different host country or culture each year.
