Here To Stay
Projections by Chinatown Art Brigade in collaboration with Chinatown Youth Organizing Project
Saturday, June 2, 8 p.m.
As a cultural collective of artists, media makers and activists, the Chinatown Art Brigade collaborated with Asian Americans United’s Chinatown Youth Organizing Project (CYOP) to design a visual platform that will amplify housing rights, gentrification and displacement on both a local and national level. Working in close partnership with The Illuminator, and through a series of community planning workshops, convenings and place-keeping walks, the project culminates in a large-scale outdoor projection celebrating stories of resistance and resilience in Philadelphia, putting a human face on gentrification and immigration, and generating a nation-wide response to this urgent issue.
