      Remembering Our Stories, Remembering Who We Are

      Homeward Bound: Global Intimacies in Converging Chinatowns uses photographs, oral histories, and multimedia archives to highlight stories of migration, displacement, and everyday resilience in Chinatowns around the world. Join curators Huiying B. Chan, Mei Lum, Diane Wong, and Pao Arts Center for a reflection on the necessity of art in these current times and a guided walk through of their exhibition Homeward Bound. Community members will read their personal love letters to Boston Chinatown and respond to the exhibition with their own stories. We will conclude with an opportunity for all participants to share their own stories of grief, love, and hope for the future.

      Homeward Bound is the first of its kind to honor, preserve, and build on the history and present day issues of Chinatowns through community-led and curated narratives from residents globally. As Chinatowns around the world continue to change and the diaspora is uprooted, it is imperative that stories at risk of being displaced are well preserved for future generations.
