What is the Exchange?
THE EXCHANGE is a series of evening events, held weekly, featuring guest presentations, performances, and activities. Sessions explore the pressing issues, histories, challenges, innovations, and vibrant cultures that make the Asia-Pacific region unique. THE EXCHANGE is a chance for students and distinguished guests to share their time and their ideas, with each becoming better informed and better connected as a result. THE EXCHANGE is planned and produced by graduate students at the East-West Center.

In the Spring of 2024, the East-West Center proudly presents its Spring Exchange, encompassing eight enriching sessions. This event will showcase a lineup of eminent personalities including academics, musicians, and performing artists, each bringing a unique perspective from various cultural backgrounds.
The Spring Exchange, set to occur from February 5 through April 8, focuses on kinship-building and fostering reciprocal relationships between people, communities, the land, and its other inhabitants. Participants will be immersed in the rich cultural tapestry of Hawaii and the Indo-Pacific, gaining insights via traditional, political, and scientific viewpoints. Through a blend of informative presentations, dynamic performances, and collaborative activities, the series offers a deep dive into these cultures. Students and community members of the East-West Center are invited to engage actively, bringing their questions and insights to these sessions.
Mark your calendars for the inaugural session of the Fall Exchange, taking place on February 5 from 18:30 to 20:30. This event will be held at the Imin International Conference Center of the East-West Center. Meet the Spring 2024 Exchange Team below!
