    The Seattle Globalist is expanding its offices to The Collaboratory, a coworking space and “incubator for social change” in Hillman City (just south of Seattle’s Columbia City neighborhood). The Globalist will now base its operations jointly from the Collaboratory and the University of Washington’s Department of Communication.

    Your stories, artwork, music or poetry about immigrating to the United States could be part of an upcoming online exhibit commemorating the Immigration Act of 1965 at the Wing Luke Museum of the Asian Pacific American Experience.

    The Wing is seeking submissions for an upcoming exhibition on the Immigration Act of 1965, which abolished the United States’ immigration national origin quota policies with a system that took into account an immigrant’s skills or family relationships with existing U.S. residents and citizens. The act expanded the number of people who could immigrate to this country.

    Accepted submissions will be displayed in a digital exhibition as part of The Wing’s Immigration Exhibit, which will be online March 5, 2015, through January 2016.

    According to the call for submissions from The Wing, the museum seeks:

    “[S]ubmissions in a variety of media, including words, poetry, photographs, paintings, graphics, animation and other forms that are suitable for online display, according to a call for submissions. The submissions may range widely within the topic of immigration, such as the notion of belonging, transnational identity, green card marriages, histories of imperialism, incarceration, the model minority myth, queerness, the diaspora, technology, outsourcing, military service and mixed-status families and so much more.

    The deadline to submit is Feb. 15, 2015. Participants do not need to be of Asian Pacific American heritage. Collaborative submissions are welcome, but the Wing Luke can only accept one submission per person.

    Submissions should include:

    • The artist’s name, website and social media handles optional.
    • Visual submissions should be downloadable in 300 DPI and in JPEG (.jpg) format.
    • Text submissions should be in Word format (.doc or .docx) in 500 words or less.
    • Music and video should be in MP3 (.mp3) or movie (.mov) files, along with a Vimeo or YouTube link.

    Submissions should be sent to Minh Nguyen at minh@wingluke.org or to

    Wing Luke Museum

    It’s not a coincidence that some of the most popular Chinese restaurants in the Seattle area are Taiwanese. Taiwan has a reputation as one of the best food destinations in Asia. Chinese-American foodies that I know say that Taiwanese restaurants are where to go to find their Chinese food fix.
