#LaoNow will take an active look into what it means for Laotians to engage with their local and international communities through personal pursuits in fashion, technology, food, art, and business. Using the cornerstones of hope and healing set forth through the advocacy from Legacies of War; vendors, speakers, and Laotian voices the world over can share their respective stories with #LaoNow.
Create a 15-60 second video showing us how you #LaoNow. Include how you as a Lao/Laotian are engaged in the following pursuits: Fashion, Technology, Business, Food, Politics and/or Art. Be creative in your submissions. Consider including visual content that is unique to your life and contains elements of the Laotian culture. For example, a short food themed video showing your passion of cooking Laotian cuisine; or a selfie shot video of you and friends at a Lao cultural event. The keys to creating a vibrant video shorts are: good lighting, clear sound, rich colors, and clear indications of how your Laotian culture is influencing your life, or the activity(ies) you love. All submitted videos so far can be found here. Check out our friend Catzie’s video below!
