Join us at this first of four workshops that teach Chinatown history and culture through the lens of the arts. These workshops are hosted at the Francis House of Peace 810 Arch Street.

Did you know? Chinatown has lost 25% of its land to date. The proportion of Chinatown residents who are Chinese has dropped from 72.2% in 2000 to 54% in 2015. Philadelphia Chinatown was one of the few ethnic enclaves that put up a fight through grassroots organizing during American urban renewal.

Learn from Chinatown's hidden history of activism, and get creative! Make your own protest posters for a cause that is important to you. A light dinner will be provided.

— PCDC's free Chinatown art and culture classes return! This bilingual program was established to build community and share Chinese history and culture.
