The Pao Arts Center is a communal space for thought leaders, artists, and neighbors to preserve traditional and contemporary artistic practice and carry on the legacy of the Asian American community. Using the arts, BCNC seeks to reclaim space for creative dialogue, amplify underrepresented voices, and strengthen family bonds.
The Arts Center is located at a historically important parcel of land, Parcel 24, which once housed over 200 Chinese immigrant families before they were displaced by the construction of I-90 and I-93. In partnership with Bunker Hill Community College, BCNC opened the Arts Center in 2017 to be Chinatown's first community-based arts center and Boston's newly dedicated Asian American and Asian immigrant cultural space.
