On April 1st, The Florentine Music School and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs (DLA) facilitated an event that allowed Chinatown and the DCLA to collaborate together, in order to evaluate the Cultural Plan, and hopefully inspire local community members to create a cultural plan of their own.

Aside from bridging the gap between locals and officials, the event also provided the Asian American Arts Centre to promote the People's Cultural Plan. Bob Lee, who attended the event, explained that  it is important for officials and locals to be given a proper amount of time to communicate, and to form a cultural plan that satisfies both parties.

We thank DCLA and The Florentine Music School for facilitating the event, and for providing a space where two seemingly different communities are able to communicate and collaborate.
