Through arts, culture, and education, the Pao Arts Center brings together community members across generations to reclaim a critical piece of Chinatown history to create healthy families and vibrant community.  In partnership with Bunker Hill Community College, BCNC opened the Pao 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. 

Boston Chinatown Neighborhood Center (BCNC) is the largest nonprofit social service provider dedicated to Asian families in the Greater Boston area, supporting over 2,600 children, youth, and adults each year at four locations in Boston and Quincy. The mission of BCNC is to ensure that the children, youth, and families we serve have the resources and supports they need to achieve greater economic success and social well-being. BCNC helps families access the resources and services available to them, provides opportunities for them to learn and acquire skills, and creates a community of mutual support and encouragement.

New England Veterans Home Workshop

New England Veterans Home Workshop

On September 11, 2017, members of Palaver Strings will perform at the New England Center and Home for Veterans. September 11th can be a very somber day, especially for our veterans, when we reflect upon the tragedies and losses that occurred in 2001. Although we may live within a global context of continuous misunderstanding, chaos, and conflict, music and art can act as a reminder of the abundant beauty, joy, and love in the world and help bring us together as a society. In addition to our visit to the center, NECHV will assist us in transporting veterans, who will receive free tickets, to our September 29 concert at Arts at the Armory in Somerville, MA. A spokesperson from the organization will speak at the concert to help raise awareness about the sacrifices our veterans have made for all of us and what we can do to support them.
