Organizational Statement
The Wing Luke Museum is the nation’s only museum dedicated to the pan-Asian Pacific American community and is located in Seattle’s Chinatown-International District. The Wing’s mission is to connect everyone to the rich history, dynamic cultures, and art of Asian Pacific Americans through vivid storytelling and inspiring experiences to advance racial and social equity. The Wing Luke Museum offers several youth programs throughout the year. YouthCAN is an arts and leadership program for high school age students (14-19 years old). TeensWay serves middle school youth (10-14 years old) and explores Asian Pacific American art, culture, heritage, and community. Summer Camp serves youth 6-12 years old and includes virtual field-trips, counselor led games and arts and crafts projects.  Due to the temporary closure of the museum, all youth programs have switched to online and museum staff are exploring opportunities to provide arts programming for remote learning.
