The Museum’s Public Programs engage multigenerational immigrants and Americans of Chinese descent as well as across the AANHPI communities from all walks of life through performing arts programs, artist talks, panel discussions, thematic tours, hands-on workshops, community seminars, film screenings, and literary events that explore MOCA’s permanent collections and exhibitions. We strive to promote a deeper understanding of the broader Asian American experience, cultivate a safe learning environment to discuss civil and human rights issues, foster a “sense of home” for Asian Americans, and provide programming that enriches the lives of all visitors regardless of their identity.
General Programs actively engage multigenerational immigrants, Americans of Chinese descent, and AANHPI communities more broadly through artist talks, panel discussions, hands-on workshops, community seminars, film screenings, and literary events.
Performance Programs welcome artists from AANHPI communities to create and showcase works in theater, dance, music, performance art, spoken word, and film. Through these performances, the Museum aims to celebrate the Chinese diaspora while fostering a deeper understanding of the Asian American experience.
