The most significant accomplishment of the WAA is to bring together a vastly diverse community consisting of more than 13 countries from south and far East Asia, representing various ethnic groups and religions (Bangladesh, Cambodia, China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Laos, Malaysia, Pakistan, Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam) under one roof and collectively give a unique festival. The fact that they come together plan the event and participate and present is commendable. This is a great opportunity for them to inter act.
The other accomplishment is that through this festival and through other artistic and cultural events, the WAA educate non-Asians about Asian art, culture and religions. This is helping to promote cultural understanding, peaceful co-existence, and mutual understanding.
Several university faculty members and community based organizations request the WAA to give educational presentation about Asian culture. Many service providers also approach the WAA to learn how to interact with their Asian clients
