ID Shop: Round Robin

Sue Jeong Ka

Two Bridges/Chinatown, Manhattan

Multidisciplinary

 

ABOUT THE PROJECT

Chinatown Commission artist Sue Jeong Ka’s “Round Robin” first started as a series of hands-on zine making workshops for teens living in Alfred E. Smith Houses, and culminated in “Round Robin Newspaper”—Two Bridge’s/Chinatown’s first-ever trilingual creative newspaper featuring local artists/residents/scholars/workers/youth from the project’s partner organization Hamilton-Madison House. This newspaper served as a platform to distribute immigrant and diasporic experiences, facts, and history of the neighborhood. The first issue was published this Fall with the theme “Across the Street,” reflecting the long standing cross-racial, public housing, and immigration issues that the neighborhood’s African American, Chinese, and Latino communities have faced.
