Audition and Submit Art for ACYD! Win Money for Talent!

The Asian Pacific Student Association at UC Irvine’s 3rd Annual Talent-Art Benefit Show | ACYD: Always Chase Your Dreams is a multimedia showcase on May 25, 2012, Friday, in which Asian Pacific-Islander (API) students attending UC Irvine will have the chance to demonstrate their talents while competing for first place. Our goal is to provide a supportive and empowering environment for both the competitors, rising stars, and audience members by emphasizing the importance of community, recognizing injustices against API people and People of Color, and providing ways to address these issues.

Furthermore, ACYD is a benefit show to raise awareness about the lack of API bodies signed-up for the bone marrow registry. While the show is free to watch, the meet and greet is only open to those who are a part of the bone marrow registry. We plan to partner with Be the Match and will have a sign-up table at the event. We will also have drawings and donation boxes at the event. 100% of the proceeds will go towards Asians for Miracle Marrow Matches (A3M) to support their efforts to diversify the bone marrow registry, particularly for the API community.



— Audition Dates: April 2, 3, 6


— Submission Deadline: May 18
