2020 MAU CALENDAR LAUNCH | 1:00 – 4:00 pm

Now in its second year, the 2020 MAU Calendar project is an artist and community produced publication showcasing the work of local artists, creatives and community businesses and social service organizations including, Ai & Om Knives, Bagua Artists Association, Bao Bei, Dan Pon, Evan Lee, Fat Mao, Jeffery Chong, Kimberly Sayson, Kimberley Wong, Laurie M. Landry, Melanie Kwan, Powell Street Festival Society, Rita Wong, Sarah Ling, Szu Shen, Wayde Compton, WePress, Yarrow Intergenerational Society for Justice and Youth Collaborative for Chinatown. The project aims to capture a contemporary portrait of a rapidly changing community while expanding the use and purpose of a calendar -- as a tool to track time, historical record and artist publication.

For the launch, an edition of 400 calendars will be available for purchase along with samples of featured dishes from the project and Mahjong playing tables, hosted by Youth Collaborative for Chinatown - 青心在唐人街.
