What We Believe
We believe it is important to develop an understanding of and appreciation for traditions of culture and belief in human societies, our events are a way to do just that. We do out best to raise awareness for our youth so they can examine and understand ways in which traditions of culture and belief shape the identities of individuals and communities. The role of culture and belief in shaping identities and communities is not simple: culture and belief can cause change, and they can also be sources of resistance to change. Cultural expressions have never been more widely disseminated. Music, images, and literature of all kinds are accessible to an extent unheard of even twenty years ago, and this has altered the way we think about cultures. We are more aware than ever of the degree to which cultures feed off one another across national, regional, religious, and ethnic boundaries. PDSCC is an honest effort to bring alive different cultures from Eastern Asia.
