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, a demonstration on the traditional tea ceremony, exploring the Central Asian Textiles of the Silk Road, the Role of Women in the the History of Tea in China, the Late Qing Expansion in Sichuan's Tibetan Borderlands, and the story of the Massacre at Hell's Canyon, followed by a half hour of further discussion and socializing in our virtual First Saturday PDX Tea House for the online 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 all streaming presentations online (Zoom). This information will be available on the Upcoming Presentation page and program announcements, when applicable. In-person programs are walk in campus events, and some may be simultaneously streamed, necessitating online registration for online access. Looking forward to your joining us!
Our educational program series has been developed with support from PSU’s Institute for Asian Studies, Northwest China Council and Lan Su Chinese garden. All programs are free and open to the public.
