Peace Lantern Ceremony
Thursday, January 11, 2018
6:30 - 8:00 pm
The Oakland Asian Cultural Center (OACC) is in the process of organizing a Peace Lantern Ceremony in Oakland (potentially on or near Lake Merritt) as part of civic engagement initiative funded by the Asian Pacific Fund.
We hope that this event will become an annual event that compliments--but does not replace--the existing Bay Area Peace Lantern Ceremony, which has been held at Berkeley's Aquatic Park for the past 16 years.
You are invited to join us in our first open planning meeting on Thursday, January 11, 2018, 6:30-8pm @ OACC (388 9th St., Suite 290 Oakland, CA 94607). Please see attached flier for more information.
You can RSVP for this meeting, or indicate your interest in future participation at: tinyurl.com/OakPeace.
Also feel free to share this invitation with others, including visual and cultural performing artists (especially traditional/folk), for whom there are special opportunities to participate.
Please contact Pam Mei with any questions at email@example.com
