This year, our festival celebrating the cultural richness of Manhattan’s Chinatown will be partly in neighborhood and partly online. In neighborhood (in person) events will all be outdoors. Since we’ll be online anyways, we’ll be highlighting virtual events from Chinatowns around the continent. It’s been a tough year, but let’s get “together” to celebrate our neighborhood…Chinatown Arts week is a festival celebrating the cultural richness of Manhattan’s Chinatown. T!C has produced several cultural events throughout the week, all of them are free to the public. By presenting grassroots Chinatown artists and emerging Asian American artists in the same context, we hope to bring the generations together and connect with a wider arts audience. ChAW also highlights cultural happenings presented by our neighbors, to increase awareness of Chinatown’s cultural assets. Beyond this week, we hope that visitors and neighbors alike will recognize and engage more in Chinatown’s cultural offerings.
