How I Keep Looking Up/Como Sigo Mirando Hacia Arriba/仰望 is a trilingual, multiethnic, community-based public art action that engages 16 working-class immigrant women in creating flags that represent their power and resilience.

Led by artist Christine Wong Yap, the project invites participants to a series of workshops at Chinatown's 41 Ross Alley and the Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts where they share their migration journeys, develop design skills, and create flags alongside one another. The flags were unveiled at the 2023 Chinese New Year Parade, borne by the designers and their families and can now be viewed at the Chinese Culture Center through August 4th.
