Community Workshop Maps Cultural Contributions of Boston’s Asian American Communities




Asian & Pacific Islander Americans in Historic Preservation (APIAHIP) and Boston Chinatown Neighborhood Center  are hosting a workshop called “East at Main” in Chinatown on Wednesday, May 7, 2014, 5:30-7:00 PM at the Boston Chinatown Neighborhood Center, 38 Ash St., in Boston.  The workshop aims to uncover and share information and memories reflecting the historical and cultural contributions of Asian and Pacific Islander Americans in Boston.

Co-sponsored with UMass-Boston Asian American Studies Program and Chinese Historical Society of New England,  this workshop is part of a national effort to capture the rich layers of place-making and community-building in Asian American communities at historically and culturally significant sites throughout the United States and US territories. East at Main Street is a crowd-sourced map available on the web and as a mobile app at www.historypin.com/project/51-east-at-main-street
