包氏文藝中心9月9-25日舉辦"體驗華埠藝術節"

Boston, MA- Pao Arts Center’s annual Experience Chinatown Arts festival returns throughout the month of September 2021 to celebrate the rich cultural fabric of Boston Chinatown through creative activities for all.  

This free event features performances, visual artists, and local businesses to restore and empower the Chinatown and Asian Pacific Islander community.

Throughout the month, visitors are invited to view colorful, bold window murals at local businesses while supporting their favorite eatery. Soyoung Kim’s On Waves of Memory boldly splashes color on the windows of Penang Malaysian Restaurant (685 Washington Street, Boston), and across the street, life size lion dancers are showcased at Q Restaurant (660 Washington Street, Boston) in the piece Lion Resistance by Shaina Lu. On Thursday nights at 5 pm, performances will fill Chinatown Park on The Greenway (near the gate) so community members can connect and enjoy music, dance and more. Finally, the festival will bring people together on its final day Saturday, September 25 from 12 – 3 pm for workshops and performances at Chinatown Park and Pao Arts Center (99 Albany Street, Boston). 

Director of Pao Arts Center Cynthia Woo shares, “this year we asked artists to think of what it means to care for Chinatown and their community. This year we are focusing on how to help community members become more resilient and able to face the challenges of today. Now more than ever, it is important to find opportunities to connect, as well as support local businesses.”

Participating visual artist, Soyoung Kim shares, “As an immigrant myself, it’s important to me that places like Chinatown exist and that the stories of its community are shared to teach and inspire the younger generations on survival and on what it means to be American.”

Pao Arts Center invites community members and neighbors to join, connect and experience something new all month. For more information, go to: https://www.paoartscenter.org/events/2021/experiencechinatown
