History from the Heart

Chinese Whispers Newsletter Vol 4.2

I hope you had a good 4th! This time of celebration is a great reminder of our country’s wonderful web of cultural confluences – such as fireworks, invented in China, and an early trade item with America. At CW, we follow the intricacies of this web to relink threads that have often been broken, and reveal patterns that often go unnoticed. Weaving together research, stories, images, and sounds, we bring you unique works that cross borders between disciplines to connect people, place, and time. It is history from the heart, because people are at the heart of history. read more…
