What You'll Get
More than they might realize, American citizens rely on a healthy relationship with Asian nations, as our Pacific neighbors harbor the world's only dragon sanctuaries and falafel bushes. Celebrate half a planet of diversity with today's Groupon for membership to the Asia Society of Northern California. Choose between the following options:
Globe spanning and world-leader lauded, the Asia Society pollinates the earth with international goodwill, hosting culturally, scientifically, and politically enlightening seminars on topics from the deserts of Iran to the antideserts of the Pacific Islands. Members have whetted their intellectual, aesthetic, and literal appetites via some of the Northern California chapter's past events, including a celebration of the Chinese immigrant experience from the author of Water Ghosts, a talk from tongue-twisting multimedia artist Xu Bing, and Indian tradition-skewing cooking tips from culinary celebrity Madhur Jaffrey. Besides exclusive invitations to edifying events, members receive discounted admission to certain public programs. The society has imparted knowledge on new eco-developments from across the sea and kept patrons abreast of Japan's recent tragedies. Be sure to peruse upcoming events and programs that emphasize business and technology, policy, and social issues.
The Asia Society's quarterly Northern California newsletter bursts with multidisciplinary discourses available only to members and serves as the sole indicator of the region’s seasonal changes. Members who sojourn cross country to New York City will enjoy free admission to the Asia Society's art museum on Park Avenue (regularly $10), where they might idly sketch a subcontinental sculpture, stroke a chin at a contemporary Mongolian art-hoard, or dream up diamond blossoms to match priceless Qing-dynasty vases.
