Chinatown Storytelling Centre
The Chinatown Storytelling Centre is a purpose-built cultural space that celebrates stories of the Chinese Canadian experience told through the lens of Vancouver's Chinatown. The Storytelling Centre shares the important legacy and history of the Chinese Canadian experience and its larger contribution to city and nation-building. It brings together in one place, in the heart of Chinatown, the cultural and historical artefacts, photos and records which tell this story.
Through community collaboration, we strive to give voice to seniors through oral history and cultural leadership platforms, strengthening intergenerational ties. Through community engagement programs, we hope to encourage preservation of artefacts and sharing stories around the themes of immigration, civic action, inclusivity, social justice, diversity and our shared intercultural history.
