The Institute for Asia and Asian Diasporas at Binghamton University sponsors outreach activities to serve the local, regional, and University communities. Our objective is to create fresh and inclusive ways of thinking, studying, teaching and learning about Asia and Asian Diasporas within the university community and beyond. A wide variety of programs and events are offered, including academic conferences at Binghamton University, presentation of lectures by visiting scholars, cultural programs and performances, workshops and resources for K-12 teachers and administrators, support of Binghamton University student groups, and participation in local cultural events.

K – 12 Educators’ Resources

Arts of Asia in the Classroom projects are presented in school classrooms, after school programs, for homeschoolers, summer camps and at large public events. Many of the projects can be done either as part of a sit-down classroom presentation which includes a PowerPoint presentation on the cultural context of the art project, or as a make-it-and-take-it activity. All art projects are designed to be part of an opportunity to learn about Asian cultures. We have also offered many of these projects to groups of adults. Please see the Projects/Instructions/Resources link below.
