Preserving Histories with Chinatown Art Brigade

As Create Change Artists-in-Residence, the collective Chinatown Art Brigade launched Here to Stay: Housing for the People Mapping Project. A collaborative, critical mapping project centering place-keeping efforts in Chinatown and the Lower East Side, Here to Stay aimed to protect and preserve these historic neighborhoods. In 2020, the group organized Coast 2 Coast Chinatown Convening in New York, a weekend for artists and organizers from Chinatowns across the US and Canada to come together and share their work, strategies, and stories.
