Toronto’s Chinatowns (East and West) have been undergoing rapid change in recent years due to urban development and economic conditions. Assistant Professor Linda Zhang, whose research and teaching practice involves the process of making, has developed a new approach to imagining the future of these cultural districts that’s based in design innovation, community engagement and play. Presented in celebration of upcoming Asian Heritage Month, this webinar focuses on Zhang’s project with Myseum of Toronto, external link with support from Ryerson’s Library Collaboratory that seeks to involve community members in dialogue about the preservation and evolution of Chinatown heritage in these historic neighbourhoods.
