Neighborhood Vision 2025

Elevate Black & Asian Creative Voices

Creatives - artists, photographers, musicians, movement artists, poets - play an essential role in driving culture and inspiration. MidTown can celebrate the strength of its local Black and Asian communities, support and draw local artists by providing tailored support and a community uplifting Black and Asian artists through physical and social arts infrastructure. Artistic work by Asian artists or featuring culturally relevant imagery should be featured in and around AsiaTown in particular.
