The Chinese Culture Center San Francisco

Grant period

2022 - 2023



The Chinese Culture Center, a leading arts institution in San Francisco, maintains a mission to giving voice to equality through education and contemporary art. This grant supports a research and community-building project centered on facilitating relationships between multidisciplinary artists and history bearers (descendants, land stewards, family archivists and institutions). The project will incubate ideas and methods for artistic interventions that can activate early Chinese American immigration history in collaboration with contemporary history bearers and artists.
