Phase 2: Digital Archive and Community Memory Map
(currently in 2009)
Phase 2 was the Community Memory Mapping Phase in which a series of community memory mapping events will occur and a place-based digital archive will be created for public access. OACC is currently developing a web-based digital archive for collected stories and future stories. Through these interactive portals along with a partnership with Storycorps, OACC continues to collect new stories about community life in Chinatown around specific places.
