The opening event of the 5th anniversary of Hapa-palooza Festival brings an electric evening of stories that shape us, curated by award-winning filmmaker Jeff Chiba Stearns. Seven storytellers including actor Patrick Gallagher (Night at the Museum/Glee), activist, filmmaker & pro snowboarder Tamo Campos, comedian Sean Devlin, musician Buckman Coe and authors Brandy Liên Worrall, Anna Ling Kaye and Chelene Knight share true tales of the shaping of their hybrid-identities. This event is the launch of Hapa-palooza Festival, the largest arts festival in Canada celebrating mixed heritage.
