Join us for a project presentation from one of our esteemed 2022 Equity In Action Grant recipients!
Asian American Arts Centre in New York City (AAAC) and Pratt Institute’s Semantic Lab worked together to ensure continued online access to resources documenting AAAC’s work. The project team digitized, described through Wikidata records, and contributed AAAC’s full collection of approximately one hundred exhibition flyers to the open repository Wikimedia Commons. Speakers will include Robert Lee, Executive Director of the Asian American Arts Centre and Karen Li-Lun Hwang, Semantic Lab Research Fellow and Former Employee of the Asian American Arts Centre.
About the grant program: The METRO Equity in Action Grant program aims to support member institutions by providing funding that assists with new and ongoing efforts to preserve our cultural history. We endeavor to fund digital projects that focus on anti-racist practices and marginalized communities. Rooted in community and collaboration, this program encourages partnerships between organizations in order to cultivate a mutual knowledge exchange that empowers both parties and creates a pipeline for access.
