Community Placekeeping and Preserving Neighborhood Identity

Much placemaking activity currently occurs in gentrifying neighborhoods and there is great debate about whether these placemaking efforts alleviate or exacerbate gentrifying forces. Much of this has to do with who is leading the placemaking efforts, and who the target audience is.

The Asian Community Development Corporation’s placemaking efforts have really been much more about “placekeeping”—maintaining the identity and boundaries of Chinatown. ACDC Executive Director Angie Liou will share her insights and discuss ACDC’s approach, particularly how youth and residents lead the efforts.

For those who qualify, 1.5 LU/HSWs are available.
