La Ville Extraordinaire (Ville X)

This is an oral history research-creation project based at the Centre for Oral History and Digital Storytelling (COHDS) in Concordia University, Montreal. The objective of Ville X is to learn from the urban knowledge of diverse older citizens in Montreal about places that matter. The project includes interviews, oral history collection and community mapping exercises and an exhibition at the Centre des Mémoires Montréalaises in 2023/2024. Jia Foundation is one of the community partners in this project in order to learn from the urban knowledge of older Chinese Montrealers and to better understand the urban change and struggle that take place in Chinatown itself.
