ThinkChinatown is a neighborhood "suggestions box" that invites residents to take ownership of their space and innovate solutions to community issues. Residents with transformative ideas partner with ACDC, which provides the technical support and funding to see proposed projects to fruition.

Goal: Revitalize Phillips Square, an unused space, and reclaim eroding borders of Chinatown. Our strategy is to create a community-centered, youth-driven mural of Chinatown "Past and Present" that activates the area and reminds passerbys that these streets still belong to residents.
