As an institution that originated from the heart of the community, MOCA carries a rich and storied history. Like ripples across water, MOCA impacts Chinatown, the neighborhood it calls home, and the reverse is also true.
An expansion in 2009 marked a great leap for the museum and signaled a change in its stakeholders, scope, and reach. For IDEAS CITY 2013, MOCA will take as themes some of the most pressing issues in the Chinatown community, ranging from language to workers rights to housing.
In a live-action, multimedia brainstorm, MOCA will present the agenda to a group of creative minds from inside and outside of Chinatown in order to come up with fresh ways to approach long-standing problems. A carefully chosen group of voices, including architects, urban planners, journalists, historians, and experiential designers, will freestyle solutions in the spirit of the IDEAS CITY theme.
Admission is $12 / $7 MOCA Members
