Asian Arts Initiative will work with a team of consultants to develop a building master plan for its multi-tenant arts facility, which serves as a community anchor in Chinatown North. Balancing a mission-aligned, equitable real estate model with opportunities for sustainable revenue generation, the plan will fortify AAI’s building operations to provide an accessible space to gather, teach, and make art that speaks to the diverse experiences of Asian Americans.
The total grant amount represents project funding plus an additional 20% in unrestricted general operating support.
