LNYF Spotlight: Meet the Exec!


About Lunar New Year Festival

February 10, 2017 @ 7pm and February 11, 2017 @ 2pm and 7pm in Edison Theatre.

Lunar New Year Festival (LNYF) is a student-run organization at Washington University in St. Louis and the annual performance of the same name produced to celebrate the Lunar New Year and promote the awareness of different facets of Asian culture. The show, which is performed three times over two days at Edison Theatre in the Mallinckrodt Center on WashU's campus, is a completely student-run production involving students from various cultural groups on campus. At the same time, it allows WashU students to engage with multiple St. Louis communities by exploring Asian heritage from a traditional as well as a modern perspective.

Through exciting performances ranging from acting to dancing to martial arts, people of all backgrounds can enjoy and celebrate the Lunar New Year together at WashU. While LNYF makes its mark through the final production showcasing various facets of Asian culture, it hopes to make its mark as more than just another campus cultural show. LNYF seeks to leave a prolonged impact upon its viewers through our skit and philanthropy. In the skit, we seek to acknowledge and address important issues to the Asian American community that not only affect Asian Americans, but all people across the globe. Additionally, each year, LNYF chooses a different philanthropy to support to not only impact the WashU community, but the St. Louis community as well. This year we have chosen the philanthropy Beyond Housing.

LNYF Charity: Beyond Housing

Helping entire communities become a better place to live.

LNYF is much more than just a show. Every year, LNYF works with a charity organization to make an impact in the surrounding community and beyond. This year, we are partnering with Beyond Housing, a community development organization that works in defined geographies such as the Normandy School District, providing services to combat inadequate housing and education, unemployment, and financial crisis. Check back here for more updates soon on how you can help Beyond Housing in their mission.
