Identity with Hilary Chung

Charity Event

Want to learn more about balancing your identity from one of New Zealand’s leading experts?

Join us in exploring identity, diversity and the impacts of diaspora on cities with Dr Hilary Chung.

Dr Chung is the founding director of the University of Auckland’s Global Studies programme. She will break down what the struggles of balancing different aspects of identity mean for people, how identity is an issue among diaspora in particular and how that can present itself in your own life. 

Join us for this excellent opportunity to explore what the impacts of multiculturalism in Auckland are on people, and what impact certain social constructs and norms have on how we view ourselves. This is a great opportunity for those who never did an Arts degree at university but kind of wished they did! 

This is an important event for those who are interested in exploring their identity, have struggled with managing several roles at once, or are simply interested in hearing a distinguished speaker talk about a topic that impacts everyone - we all balance multiple roles and identities. See you there! 

Tickets are limited! Registration and more info below.
