In 2017, arts and culture nonprofit Asian Arts Initiative (AAI) created a cultural plan for Callowhill and Chinatown North.
This summer, People:Power:Place launched its pilot cooperative facilities project, SHARED SPACES 共享空间, which connects neighborhood-based cultural groups with low- or no- cost residency, rehearsal or meeting space.
Neighborhood Project Manager Dave Kyu said via email that the project’s long-term goal is “to ensure that artists and immigrants will continue to have a presence in our fast-developing neighborhood.”
