KYCC’s Koreatown Storytelling Program is an intergenerational, multilingual and multiethnic oral history and digital media program that teaches ethnographic and storytelling techniques to high school students and elders to investigate cultural practices and racial, economic and health inequities in our community.
The program promotes greater understanding and respect between generations and documents marginalized narratives for preservation in public archives while also cultivating wellness outcomes for all participants.
Intergenerational. Multiethnic. Multilingual.
We are high school students and elders who live and work in Los Angeles’s Koreatown. Read our stories to learn more about our thoughts and insights on our community and how our lives and livelihoods have been upended by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Garment “Jobber” Industry
For the January to June 2021 program, we will explore and examine the Garment District in Los Angeles and the impact that COVID-19 has had on the severely impacted merchandising and apparel “jobber” industry.
