2013 Urban Showcase!
Event Info: Urban Showcase is an annual event hosted by Cal Poly Pomona’s Asian Pacific Islander Student Center that occurs in the month of May. It is a showcase of API students and community performers whose talents are influenced by the Hip Hop culture. Performances range from musicians, dance groups, vocalists, spoken-word artists, live-art, and much more.
Through this event, we aim to accomplish 3 main goals:
GOAL 1: To promote and showcase Asian Pacific Islander talent through the arts
