Chinese Culture Center of San Francisco (CCC) is an art, culture, and education non-profit which has served the community for 50 years. CCC will unveil 16 custom flags that celebrate Chinese and Latinx immigrant cultures at the 2023 Chinese New Year Parade!
“How I Keep Looking Up/Como Sigo Mirando Hacia Arriba/仰望” is a cross-cultural, trilingual art project using flags to amplify stories of resilience. Lead artist Christine Wong Yap collaborated with 16 working-class immigrant women in workshops to share stories and create flags to march in the 2023 Chinese New Year Parade. The Chinese New Year Parade began in the 1860s as a rare opportunity for early immigrants to display their cultural power in public spaces. On February 4th, the group will proudly march as mothers, workers, activists, and artists who represent San Francisco’s powerful immigrant communities.
