Planet Takeout is a participatory documentary project about the Chinese takeout as a vital cultural crossroads in Boston and beyond. The radio and multimedia project aims to turn local Chinese takeouts into spaces for community storytelling and to use the stories as lenses into both the local neighborhood and into global immigration patterns to the city.
The interactive website launched on Oct. 1, 2012. Go to planettakeout.org to explore the world of four takeouts in diverse Boston neighborhoods. And then get ready to contribute your own stories and photos of your favorite takeout to our ever-expanding map of takeouts in Boston. This project won't work without your help!
Produced by Val Wang and brought to you by WGBH 89.7, Zeega and Localore, a national initiative of the Association for Independents in Radio.
