Events

Our events currently consist of a combination of online and in-person events held in Sydney (NSW). As the team and community expands we hope to hold events in other parts of Australia. While the Asian Australian Project initially revolved around attending in-person events, during the Covid pandemic we pivoted to include more online events.

Events include:

  • In-person/online Socials e.g. movie nights, board game nights at local bars & restaurants
  • AAP attends ‘The Farewell’ and ‘Minari’
  • Fireside Chats (virtual discussion panels)
