For those of you who don’t know, April is the Asian/Asian American, Middle Eastern, Pacific Islander, and Queer Awareness Month at Wesleyan. That is a whole lot to be aware about and the April Planning Committee wants to make sure you know that there are still many events this month centered around or celebrating these identities.
Here are the events coming up. Since there are so many, I had to put a bunch after the jump. Check em out!
April 17 at 10:30 pm
The theme this year is “Wet”
WesFestival of Colors
April 18th at 2:30 pm CANCELLED
In a belated celebration of Holi, come out to Foss Hill for a WesFestival of Colors! Revelers celebrate Holi in India by throwing brightly colored paint at each other all day for good luck, in honor of the arrival of spring. Shakti will bring colored powder (all natural, non-toxic) and blast the music – you bring friends, wearing white and prepared to get messy.

Schuyler Swenson ’09 sends in info about her new blog, Wesleyazn:
Wesleyazn is a new blog I’ve started that I hope will be used as a source for information about Asian American politics, art, pop culture, music, literature, current events, etc. and a place for discussion about the Asian American community and events at Wesleyan. If you’d like to be a contributor, please send an email to wesleyazn@gmail.
We’ve added it to our blogroll in the sidebar “Wes 2.0”; check it out!
