BCNC Pao Arts Center Receives Grant from The Boston Foundation


Boston, MA -- Boston Chinatown Neighborhood Center (BCNC) announced today that it has received a $20,000.00 grant from the Boston Foundation to support its Pao Arts Center, which opened in May 2017 in partnership with Bunker Hill Community College (BHCC).

“With the support of the Boston Foundation, the Pao Arts Center will provide more support and opportunities to a diverse range of artists in underrepresented communities like Chinatown,” said Giles Li, BCNC Executive Director. “BCNC established the Pao Arts Center last year as a place for families, artists, and other stakeholders to connect and build community together. This generous award helps make that mission a reality.”

This grant will support the Pao Arts Center, Chinatown’s first community-based arts center and Boston’s newly dedicated Asian American and Asian immigrant cultural space. Since its opening in May 2017, the Pao Arts Center has hosted over 1,000 guests for classes, gallery exhibits, book signings, film screenings, performances, and more.

Funds for this grant come from the Boston Foundation’s Permanent Fund for Boston,Greater Boston’s only endowed fund focusing on the pressing needs of Greater Boston. The Permanent Fund has been made possible by more than a century of gifts from those who seek to support innovative solutions to the region’s most pressing problems since 1915.
