Underwater Chinatown: Digital Stories Explore. Discover. Create.




Explore the forgotten spaces and buried histories of Vancouver's Chinatown. Discover the cultural currents that connect you to Chinatown past and present. Learn how to create story boards, craft an engaging story, record voiceovers, and perform basic audio editing to produce your own digital Chinatown story.

Underwater Chinatown: Digital Stories is a series of artist-facilitated community digital storytelling workshops focused on unearthing alternative histories of Vancouver’s Chinatown.
