Quick Preview - Season 2022 - 2023
Welcome to the First Saturday PDX 2022 - 2023 season! This collection of programs will be a hybrid group, with in person programs and online presentations. We will have China-related subjects involving a trip to the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art in Eugene, the Late Qing Expansion in Sichuan's Tibetan Borderlands, a comparison of two singular young women from the Chinese and American cultures in the 1950's, exploring the Central Asian Textiles of the Silk Road, an in person gathering around the table for dim sum brunch, and the story of the Massacre at Hell's Canyon, the return of our Chinese New Year's Lunch to Celebrate the Year of the Rabbit, the Role of Women in the the History of Tea in China, and a look at the role of the Residential Hotel in Chinatowns - all followed by a half hour of further discussion and socializing in our virtual First Saturday PDX Tea House for the online programs, or lunch family style at a Chinese restaurant for in person programs. This season begins on 10 September, 2022 running through 3 June, 2023.
Although all our events are free, registration is required for access to any online streaming (Zoom) presentations and also for in-person events to give us a head count . This information will be available on the Upcoming Presentation page and program announcements, when applicable. We look forward to you joining us!
