The Harjit Kaur Sidhu Memorial Program was established in loving memory of Harjit Kaur Sidhu (nee Gill), devoted wife, mother, and strong advocate for education, Punjabi culture and language, and women’s issues. Every year, the program features a keynote address or performance, awards for a local writer and student-contest winners, and student performances. This year, the program takes place in association with an Arts-based workshop with the Peter Wall Institute; students will create and perform at the workshop.
Made possible with the generous support of the Sidhu Family, UBC Asian Studies and the Department of Theatre and Film, and the Peter Wall Institute for Advanced Studies.
