Celebrate “Chinese in the Richmond” with our first Community Open House with Western Neighborhoods Project (WNP). “Chinese in the Richmond” is a collaborative project between WNP and CHSA that seeks to illuminate the lives of Chinese Americans on the west side.
Join us Saturday, April 24th, 11am-3pm, in real life at the WNP office at 1617 Balboa Street near 17th avenue in the Richmond District to learn about “Chinese in the Richmond,” see a pop-up sidewalk exhibition of CHSA’s prior project, “Chinese in the Sunset,” and chat with project staff. Most importantly, we want to capture and preserve your history at this Open House. Bring photographs, mementos, and other ephemera to share and WNP will scan them within 60 days, returning your family treasures with a copy of the scans. We can’t wait to hear your stories!
Open House attendees are required to wear a mask and practice social distancing with people from other households.
This event is made possible by California Humanities through a “Humanities for All” Project grant. The event is free but RSVP is appreciated so we know how many of you we’ll see on Saturday.
