KASA Show (Korean American Student Association)
Who are we?
Northwestern’s Korean American Student Association is one of the Midwest’s largest collegiate Korean American cultural organizations with more than 150 members. We provide social and culturally informative activities through programming such as speaker events, Korean holiday celebrations, and food fundraisers. These activities serve those who share a common interest in Korean culture and issues. We also strive to promote awareness of Korean American students’ interests to the general Northwestern student body.
What is our project?
KASA Show is our largest annual event and engages the Northwestern and greater Chicagoland communities. Through student acts and guest performances, we strive to showcase both traditional and modern aspects of Korean culture. Student-led acts include NU Taekwondo, Fusion Dance Company, and KASA Singers and Presents, which are student-run Korean vocal and dance cover groups. Our past headliners have included R&B artist DEAN, dancer Sorah Yang, hip-hop duo Year of the Ox, and rapper Awkwafina. We believe that exposure to a multitude of cultures and backgrounds is essential to serving Northwestern's mission of promoting a diverse academic community. KASA Show’s mission is to provide an opportunity for Northwestern students to catch a glimpse of Korean culture and develop an appreciation for a perspective that may differ from their own.
How you can help!
To make KASA Show this year even greater than before, we need your help in raising $3,500. This money will go toward paying for our various event costs, such as renting the venue, light/sound, decorations, and security. It will also help cover flights, meals, and transportation for our headlining acts. A contribution at any level will allow us to produce the best show possible.
