The City2City committee had the pleasure of sponsoring our first K-Pop Virtual Celebration. On February 4, 2021, members of Sister Cities of Hampton came together with the Hampton High K-Pop Dance Club to educate the community on the Korean Pop dance culture that has gained popularity in the United States. Citizens of Hampton and Anyang, South Korea came together virtually through Zoom for an evening of fun, culture, education, and entertainment. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, our in person events were paused. However, it is our hope that 2023 will bring renewed health so that we can safely resume these activities. We are looking forward to next year’s in-person party in March 2023!
Sister Cities of Hampton started the first City2City event in 2013 to raise awareness about our organization. Due to its mass appeal, it grew into an annual signature event. The overarching objective of this event is to expose Hampton youth to our city’s international relationships and recruit our young people to become more involved in activities with our sister cities organization.
Through events such as this one, we hope to further develop the global perspective of youth who reside in the City of Hampton, and bring awareness of youth initiatives within our organization.
During each of the events we provided fun interactive activities and/or demonstrations that highlight our four sister cities. Past activities included:
