    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.
