Each year, hundreds of volunteers contribute tens of thousands of hours across many capacities and various roles to ACSEA. Together we create opportunities for new artistic expressions to flourish, all while having a great time! We have volunteering opportunities for people with a variety of schedules, skills, and interests. Join the ACSEA volunteer family to spread the love, discover new experiences, and make lifelong friends!
Asian-Canadian Special Events Association (ACSEA) is a Vancouver-based non-profit organization that creates sustainable projects in the areas of arts and culture, and works with partners across British Columbia, Canada, and internationally. ACSEA is guided by our mandate for Engaging Communities, Fostering New Artistic and Cultural Expressions, and Creating a Platform to Learn and Share.
ACSEA has a long history of curating and producing large events, including a very successful partnership with Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics Cultural Olympiad. Our signature events are spread throughout the year: LunarFest near the end of winter, TAIWANfest in the summer, and “We Are Canadians, Too!” event in partnership with Canadian Heritage and Canada 150.C
TAIWANfest is a summer event that has been introducing Taiwanese culture to Canada for over 31 years. 2020 TAIWANfest turns to the virtual platform “The Survived” to inspire and invoke learning and appreciation through arts and culture. “The Survived” will bring a multitude of virtual content accessible to everyone as well as physical installations in Vancouver.
We are looking forward to another exciting year of friendly faces, great programs, and fun times with people like you, who make up our talented cast of volunteers!
