The Placemaking Project

Asian Americans have been living in the Evanston area since the 1800’s yet there are no records, documents or artifacts that mark their existence much less their contributions to the city’s development and growth over the years.

The Placemaking Project seeks to uncover the stories that have been lost, and to record the ones that exist today in an effort to prevent the cultural erasure that threatens the Asian American community across the country and in our own backyard.

Join us to learn more about this exciting project and plans for future collection and preservation of local Asian American history and culture.

Hosted in conjunction with the Evanston ASPA.

Wednesday, May 29
12:00pm – 1:00pm
In-person at the Robert Crown Branch or Virtual
This event is one of several programs in honor of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month. See the full list.

Today a reader, tomorrow a leader.
