Talk Story: Annual Review & Pioneer Dinner
December 17 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm$35
Each December, we have an end-of-year wrap up for our Talk Story program. We hope you can join us for a special wrap up at The Chinatown Garden Restaurant over a “Pioneer Meal,” RR exhibit and annual review on Sunday, December 17, at 6:30 pm.Doors open at 5:30pm.
We are planning for our eighth season of monthly community Talk Story Events in Chinatown, DC and organizing our sixth 1882 Symposium of museums and public educators of Chinese American history, as well as expanding our teacher training and curriculum programs to Richmond and Norfolk in 2018 as well as nationally to Sacramento in the form.of our promotion of “Heritage Tours.”
All of this has been made possible by collaborations among stakeholders sharing a common goal to broaden public awareness of Chinese American history and heritage, by short term grants for specific events, and– most importantly–by the boundless devotion of our community volunteers and partners. In our seven active years, we have never charged a participation or admission fee for any of our events and workshops. We have never held a fund raiser.
We like it that way, but our programs are growing and, as we plan for 2018, we hope you can consider making a donation of any amount. We are an IRS-approved nonprofit 501(c)3 organization. Checks to the “1882 Foundation ” can be mailed to: 1882 Foundation, 508 I Street NW, lower level, Washington DC 20001.
Thanks for your support and wishing everyone a happy New year!
Ted Gong, Executive Director
