Chinatown Stories Volume 4

Chinatown Today

Description & Details

Through poetry, prose, film, audio, and art, the contributors of Chinatown Stories Volume 4 interrogate identity, social pressures, and climate change. On hot asphalt and gathered around steaming dinners, they wrestle with complicated desires and challenging solidarities. In the windows of butcher shops and hidden karaoke rooms, they search for joy.

    Chinatown Today

    Chinatown Today is a Vancouver Chinatown based non-profit that is dedicated to helping share Chinatown’s stories – past, present, and future. Energized and influenced by the diverse Chinatown community, Chinatown Today is emboldened by the fact that many of the stories are carried by the elders and knowledge holders in spaces that are often difficult to access. These knowledge holders often view their stories as undesirable and undervalued, but Chinatown Today sees how valuable these stories are. Their mission is to create spaces where Chinatown elders feel comfortable sharing their stories to uplift these experiences and share these pieces of knowledge with the larger community.

    Since 2017, their signature publication, Chinatown Stories, has served as a platform for sharing stories taking a variety of forms, from interviews and creative non-fiction to recipes, essays, poetry, prose, and photography.
