“Around the Corner” is a PhillyCAM show that offers local social impact leaders the opportunity to share what impact their work is having on the Philadelphia area.
Asian Arts Initiative (AAI) was born 24 years ago of the idea that art can be a vehicle for social justice change.
Now, the community arts organization is embarking on a creative version of strategic planning: a “cultural plan” of the neighborhoods surrounding AAI, Chinatown North and Callowhill, which will track cultural assets and examine how AAI can be engage with them.
Those assets might include galleries and performance spaces, “but we’re also defining culture very broadly, because we are also interested in that equity piece and social justice,” he said.
Learn more about the nonprofit and its planning process in Kyu’s “Around the Corner” interview below.
PhillyCAM is Comcast channel 66/966 HD/967 and Verizon FIOS channel 29/30 in Philadelphia.
