Adaptation Community Identity: Stories and Presence of Asian Immigrant Entrepreneurs


March 3, 2021
7:30pm EST

The COVID-19 pandemic brought with it many unprecedented challenges and magnified the social barriers that existed in Asian immigrant communities. In response, MAPC initiated a regional storytelling project to spotlight stories of resilient Asian immigrant entrepreneurs in our region.




MAPC partnered with filmmaker, Daphne Xu to create three video-lets: Quincy, from a distance to document the lived experiences and strength of three Asian Small Business Owners in Quincy.


MAPC与电影制作人徐乙漾(Daphne Xu)一起制作了三部视频短片,记录昆西三位亚裔小企业主的生活和奋斗。


Join us on Wednesday March 3 at 7:30PM, for the premiere of the stories shared by a Salon owner, a Lion dance instructor, and the CEO of a travel agency in Quincy’s vibrant Asian American business community.




Following the premiere, there will be a live Q&A with the artist, Daphne Xu to talk about her practice and dive deeper into the role of socially-engaged art in planning.
