Initial thoughts of a Little Saigon Cultural District were introduced in 2014 by a few Vietnamese-American community members.
The idea of a Boston Little Saigon resurfaces among members of the Networking Organization for Vietnamese Americans (NOVA).
The first public meeting held in the Dorchester community was to gather interests for a cultural district.
Meeting with the Mayor's Office of Arts and Culture provided information on the process and criteria for a cultural district.
Many working sessions were held to discuss the name designation and goals for the cultural district.
We are currently awaiting state approval from the Mass Cultural Council for the official state designation of our cultural district!
