Fall 2007 Teacher's Workshop: "HEALTH & HEALING IN SOUTHEAST ASIA"

The teachers workshop took place with great success despite the storm weather on Saturday, December 1, 2007, with 18 enthusiastic teachers and other educators in attendance from Madison, LaCrosse, Milwaukee, and Verona! One of workshop themes was the potential SYNERGY that can occur when the University, K-12 schools and the Community work together effectively in mutually supportive problems.

The workshop showcased inspiring speakers who have committed their lives to Southeast Asian communities in Wisconsin and in Southeast Asia:

Mary Grow
(Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture), “Shelter and Sacred Spaces: Fieldnotes from Thailand”

Jim Harris (We Help War Victims), “Survivors of War: Rebuilding Lives”

Kabor Thao, (UW-Msn, CSEAS), "Hmong Dance: A Personal View”

Kabzuag Vaj (Freedom Inc.), "Supporting the Southeast Asian Community Through Action”

Yang Thai Vang (Hmong shaman), “Being a Hmong Shaman Today”

Sarith Ou and Roger Garms (Cambodian School Project), "The Cambodia School Project: Rebuilding Education for Future Generations"
