YOUNG POLONIA TALKS: 1

Event date: 

05/03/2017 - 12:30

The Auckland Polish Association invites you to

 

“Young Polonia Talks: 1”

 

This event is intended for Polish youth and their friends, aged 18-40, to network and learn about work being done by other Polish youth.

 

Join us for a lunch presentation given by Amanda Chalupa from Montreal, Canada. She will present some of her research and preview scenes from the documentary Memory Is Our Homeland

More info & film trailer: www.memoryisourhomeland.com

 

Amanda Chalupa is a Polish-Canadian PhD student in Social & Transcultural Psychiatry at McGill. Her research focuses on how child migrants rebuild their lives on individual and community levels. Specifically, she works with Polish people who were sent to Soviet labour camps during WWII and who grew up around the world, including in New Zealand (the “Pahiatua Children”). Her grandparents grew up in Zambia and Tanzania as a result of these historical events. She has traveled internationally to meet with Polish communities and people of all ages.

 

During this event, we will also brainstorm ideas for a group of “Polish Students and Young Professionals of New Zealand”, inspired in part by the Young Polish Canadian Professionals Association (YPCPA).

 

We hope this event will be the first of many highlighting the work and achievements of young Polish community members.

and since then The APA invites all young professionals for monthly lunches with "Young Polonia talk"
