Creative expression plays a vital role in the formation of self-identity and promotes dialogue and social consciousness. Join South Bay First Thursdays as we highlight the work of local API artists in our community. Through an interactive panel followed by workshops, these artists will inspire and engage audience members to connect to their personal identities through artistic expression.
When & Where
South Bay First Thursdays
South Bay First Thursdays (SBFT) is a volunteer-run organization that holds events on every first Thursday of the month to discuss topics relevant to the Asian-Pacific Islander (API) community. Our events consist of a panel of experts followed by facilitated group discussions. Beyond providing the community with knowledge, SBFT also provides a chance for young professionals to build networks and new friendships with people in the non-profit, for-profit, and government sectors.
South Bay First Thursdays aims to foster an engaged and empowered community that believes in equality, education, action, and diversity.
South Bay First Thursdays exists to inspire, educate, and mobilize the community about API relevant issues by promoting safe and facilitated dialogues.
SBFT is fiscally sponsored by Asian Americans for Community Involvement (AACI), Santa Clara County’s largest community-based organization focused on the Asian community.
