JCHS’s 2022 Spring First Friday Speaker Series kicks off in February!
Our 2022 Spring First Friday Speaker Series celebrates Chinese American voices from within the Port Townsend community and beyond. Through the lens of multi-disciplinary art, film, and academic research, speakers will share their perspectives on historical and contemporary experiences of Chinese and Chinese American peoples in Jefferson County and Washington State.
The Spring Series will take place on the first Fridays of February, March, and April at 7:00 PM. The line-up includes:
- February 4: Feeding Ghosts Graphic Memoir Artist Talk with Tessa Hulls
- March 4: The Chinese Gardens Film Talk with Filmmaker Valerie Soe
- April 1: Chinese in Port Townsend & Washington State with Author Doug Chin
Please note that due to the rise in COVID-19 cases, the February 4 program will be livestreamed only – there will be no in-person attendance. Currently, the March and April events will be available virtually via livestream from the Northwest Maritime Center, or available to attend in-person, where the audience capacity will be limited to 35 guests and will require proof of COVID-19 vaccination. Recordings of each event will be made available to registered attendees post-event.
