An Audio Tour of Chinatown

T’karonto's downtown Chinatown is not a monolith and is more than a tourist destination. It is an active community, home to many, and full of stories.

Join Hannia Cheng, co-founder of Tea Base and founding member of @friendsofchinatownto, as they take you on a 90-minute podcast style adventure through downtown Chinatown filled with artistic interventions, interviews, and interactive prompts.

Informed by the historical and global contexts in the evolution of Chinatowns in Western cities, this audio experience takes a deep look into the complexities of migration, displacement, and assimilation that happen across generations and Turtle Island. It is only through recognizing the multiplicity of downtown Chinatown can we collectively imagine its speculative futures.
