Placemaking Project Portraits

Placemaking Project Portraits

View the portraits of Asian, South Asian, and Pacific Islander Evanston community members.

In an effort to document, share, and preserve Evanston’s ASPA history, the Evanston History Center and the Kitchen Table Stories Project are engaging in an ongoing project to research that history, to gather stories from the local ASPA community, and preserve and share this history today and into the future. From artifacts, biographies, and stories to accounts of immigration and refugee journeys and personal testimonies, this collected history will be housed in the Evanston History Center and shared as part of the Kitchen Table Stories Project.
