That's Neaat/Hay Qua: Mini-Fest In NYC For Vietnamese American Creative Thinkers, Dreamers, Doers

Friday, May 22, 2009

Does these people never sleep?

The imaginative and unconventional "That's Neaat!/Hay Qua!" Mini-Fest is unfolding, almost out of nowhere, fast and furious. A collaboration between VASCON and NEAATO , Mini-Fest was also quick to partner with highly-anticipated Kollaboration New York 2009 (KNY2009) and take inspiration from TED with very humble beginnings. The Mini-Fest will present its out-of-the-box programming during the day on June 27th at New York's iconic Bitter End venue, home to legends like Woody Allen and Norah Jones, followed by KNY2009 later that evening a couple of blocks away at NYU Skirball Center.

Mini-Fest has at least one goal: to alter the way you think about life, dreams, and everything in between. Already, rabble-rousing publishers, award-winning architects, writers, musicians, film directors, environmentalists, and rising chefs are signing up to present their bite-size talks and performances about what stirs their hearts and opens our eyes.

Sharing a mission to elevate Asian Americans in entertainment and creative fields, KNY2009 and Mini-Fest are excited to provide a discounted 2-in-1 registration package, for a mere $40 (limited time only). VASCON veterans will be elated to hear that VASCON royalty Magnetic North, Vudoo Soul, and VASCON board members among others will be in attendance for the reunion of the year. A number of them linked up in KNY2009's latest remix of Ne-Yo's "Closer", as seen here:

The $40 Early Bird combo registration kicks off on May 21st until end of month (or while supplies last!), with Regular registration following on June 1st. There is limited seating, so make sure to book your flight and register before the events sell out. Flights to New York for that weekend are currently averaging at $250.
