This is a partnership between Jia Foundation and UBC INSTRCC (Initiative for Student Teaching and Research in Chinese Canadian Studies) to facilitate strategic collaborations and communications between Chinatowns. Chinatowns across North America were born out of the experience of discrimination. While each Chinatown has a unique history with its distinct local political, social and economic context that shape the present day challenges, these Chinatowns are, nonetheless, connected by shared value, purpose and cultural heritage. Jessica Chen of Jia Foundation has been collaborating with UBC INSTRCC on Vancouver Chinatown Cultural Heritage Asset Management Plan (CHAMP), National Forum on Anti-Asian Racism and “Belonging at the Table: transforming intangible cultural heritage to reflect who, where and when we are in Canada” project.
