Underwater Chinatown: Digital Stories is a series of artist-facilitated community digital storytelling workshops focused on unearthing alternative histories of Vancouver’s Chinatown. Participants of the workshops researched and discovered the cultural currents that connect them to Chinatown's past and present, learned how to create story boards, craft an engaging story, record voice overs, perform basic audio editing and produced their own digital audio Chinatown stories.

The Underwater Chinatown Community Art Project is co-presented by Chinese Cultural Centre of Greater Vancouver and Cinevolution Media Arts Society and is partially funded by the Community Arts Council of VancouverDigital media instructor: Catrina Longmuir.
