Tea at Chinatown House
February 23, 2019 - 1:30pm - 3:00pm
Chinatown House
188 East Pender Street

The cultural heritage of Chinatown is a core aspect of what makes this neighbourhood unique – as a historic place but also a living community. Join VHF for a visit to Chinatown House, a new hub in a converted building that is providing space for co-working and cultural programming. Hear about the project from Leslie Shieh, co-founder of Tomo Spaces and learn about the intangible cultural heritage of the area from Helen Lee, a planner with the City of Vancouver’s Chinatown Transformation Team. In exploring the important role of intangible heritage to Chinatown’s revitalization and conservation, Helen will be joined by Cantonese instructor and certified tea master, Christine Wong, who will serve tea and discuss its relevance in Chinese traditions and everyday practices. There will also be a special reading from the recently published Journeys of Hope: Challenging Discrimination and Building on Vancouver Chinatown’s Legacies. Tickets are $20.
