The Texture of Diversity...

...in the Chinese community.

Yesterday, we met with San Francisco artist Rene Yung to continue discussions on a community building art project that will showcase the incredible diversity within our community. So many times people hear "Chinese Information and Service Center" and assume that we a limited to a very narrow segment of the population.

What they often don't know is that our clients, volunteers, donors and staff hail for around the world, coming from numerous different countries, cultures, and speaking multiple different dialects. Some of us are recently arrived, while others have been here for 5 generations or more.

It is this rich tapestry of experiences and backgrounds that we want to highlight in our new space as we continue to serve an ever diversifying clientele in Seattle and throughout the region.

What would you like to see on this wall?
