sits within walking distance of the cultural home of the Pan-Asian community of
Seattle. It's the only neighborhood in America where Chinese, Filipino,
Japanese, Vietnamese, and Southeast Asians live and work together,
side-by-side. On this immersion, you'll have the opportunity to learn about the
rich history of this neighborhood, including learning about the effects of the
Japanese Internment. During the immersion, we'll take a walking tour with the
unofficial Mayor of the International District, garden, square dance, and play
ping pong with Asian elders, and learn about how this neighborhood is
navigating a changing Seattle.
Limited to 10
Students without the
required gear will not be able to participate in the immersion.
Remember we all need
to pack light. This is only a short trip and we have limited room in the vans.
Please bring your own if possible. If you cannot, please let us know by August
