As we closed out AANHPI Heritage Month, EMAC was elated to launch The Stockton Cultural Wealth Project, a digital storytelling project that we hope provides the opportunity to learn from the lives of Asian Americans & Pacific Islanders in Stockton, humanize our experiences across communities, and find healing and empowerment in sharing our stories.


The project name derives from Dr. Tara Yosso’s definition of Community Cultural Wealth, "an array of knowledge, skills, abilities, and contacts possessed and used by Communities of Color to survive and resist racism and other forms of oppression." Dr. Yosso outlines six forms of cultural capital that we possess: aspirational, linguistic, familial, social, navigational, and resistance. We use this lens to showcase and learn from the incredible Community Cultural Wealth of Stocktonians.



Stay tuned for new episodes of the Stockton Cultural Wealth Project each month! Help us continue to lift up stories like these by donating to EMAC at emacstockton.org/donate

A HUGE thank you to The Stockton Arts Commission for awarding EMAC a Stockton Arts Grant for the 2023 grant cycle! This funding will help us continue our Stockton Cultural Wealth Project!


The purpose of the Stockton Arts Grant program is to support, stimulate, and strengthen public engagement and access to the arts in Stockton through project-based funding, to increase the capacity of local arts agencies, arts organizations, artist communities, individual artists (including student artists), and arts educators to benefit and enrich our diverse communities. Additionally, the program aims to support and enable the creation of diverse arts and cultural programming within the City of Stockton.
