Better Future Episode 01 - The Chinatown Imperative

By Company One Theatre (other events)

Friday, June 12 2020 1:00 PM 2:15 PM EDT

C1's Better Future Series is a multi-part digital gathering bringing together Boston’s artists, community leaders, and policymakers to understand the needs of our neighborhoods and reimagine the future of our city, both in response to the current pandemic and our ongoing fight against the deep-rooted culture of white supremacy.

Broadcast live on C1’s Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube, each monthly episode will focus on one of Boston’s neighborhoods, highlight the issues that matter most to its residents, and amplify opportunities for viewers to make a difference. Each episode will be anchored by an organization that is making an impact in that community, a policymaker with a focus on that community, and an artist whose work intersects with that community. 

In conjunction with this series, Company One Theatre will also be donating to social justice-driven organizations working toward the community concerns discussed in each episode.


On Friday, June 12 at 1pm, join Boston City Councilor At-Large Michelle Wu, Boston Chinatown Neighborhood Center's newly appointed CEO Ben Hires, Pao Arts Center director Cynthia Woo, and C1 PlayLab Pao Fellows Kit Yan & Melissa Li for a conversation aimed at understanding the needs of Chinatown residents and businesses in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the gentrification of this vital neighborhood, and reimagining its vibrant future. 

This episode will be moderated by Karthik Subramanian.
Creative producer: Jasmine Brooks. Technical producer: Mads Massey.

Please note that this event will stream live on all C1 social media platforms, free of charge. This is not a ticketed event, but we will email reminders to all who sign up on this page.
