WHAT WE DO

Vietnamese Art, History, & Political Education

VIETNAMESE ART, HISTORY, & POLITICAL EDUCATION

As Vietnamese people in the U.S., with our stories constantly told for us, we aim to inform generations of Vietnamese American people about who we are, where we come from, and the full complexities of our migration histories. We want Vietnamese people in Orange County to see our culture and histories portrayed with truth and dignity. 

We provide Vietnamese history, arts, and culture teach-in workshops and incorporate it into all of our campaigns and programs.

Our work includes:

  • Political Tours of Little Saigon
  • Past to Present: Empowerment through our Viet Stories workshops
  • And interactive arts and cultural events, and more
