This is part two of the Project Vision Basement Remodeling project. The TAP Community Service committee is looking for volunteers to place flooring for Project Vision’s rented basement, since the materials were not available for the first volunteering session. The space is roughly 75×20 and will be used for after-school or weekend activities for children in Bridgeport and Chinatown.
Directions for flooring a space will be provided day of the event at the site. We would really appreciate the time and commitment of anyone wants to help make this facility a better space for the children.
We will be taking a lunch break during the session.
Time: December 4th, 9am-2pm
Location: 236 W. 22nd Place in Chinatown, between Princeton and Wentworth Ave.
Parking: There is free street parking available. Residential streets that are not restricted are recommended, including parts of 23rd Place, 23rd St, and 24th St. There is also sometimes parking on Princeton. Be sure to check signs for permit parking, as not all street parking is open. Metered parking is on Wentworth and parts of some of the other side streets as well.
Join members of TAP-Chicago’s Cultural Committee for a special screening of The Assassin, the film that won acclaimed Taiwanese Director Hou Hsiao-Hsien the Best Director Award at Cannes Film Festival in 2015. The Assassin also won the 2016 Asian Film Award for Best Film, Best Director, and Best Actress.
Described as “ravishingly beautiful” and “masterful” by critics, the film is an artistic interpretation of the historical martial arts film genre. Here’s your chance to see this visually stunning film on a big-screen.
The film is presented by Asian Pop-Up Cinema, a organization dedicated to bringing the best of contemporary Asian cinema to the general public. For more information and to see the trailer:
