We're hosting the first of two Community Open Houses to celebrate "Chinese in the Richmond," a collaborative project between Western Neighborhoods Project (WNP) and the Chinese Historical Society of America (CHSA) that seeks to illuminate the lives of Chinese Americans on the west side.
Join us from 11:00am to 3:00pm on Saturday, April 24th in real life at the WNP office at 1617 Balboa Street near 17th avenue in the Richmond District to learn about "Chinese in the Richmond,", see a pop-up sidewalk exhibition of CHSA's prior project, "Chinese in the Sunset," and chat with project staff. Most importantly, we want to capture and preserve your history at this Open House. Bring photographs, mementos, and other ephemera to share and WNP will scan them within 60 days, returning your family treasures with a copy of the scans. We can't wait to hear your stories!
We are not able to welcome visitors inside the WNP office at this time, and all Open House attendees are required to wear a mask and practice social distancing with people from other households.
This event is made possible by California Humanities through a "Humanities for All" Project grant. The event is free but RSVP is appreciated so we know how many of you we'll see on Saturday.
After completing registration and/or payment, you should receive a confirmation email almost immediately, if you don't, let us know with the contact form.
