Chinatown MUSE Society

Chinatown MUSE Society was formed in 2019 by a collection of Vancouver Chinatown based community organizations out of a desire to tell a more accurate story of Vancouver’s Chinatown. This is to combat the the rampant misinformation in the contemporary storytelling around Chinatown which is based on tropes and stereotypes. The Society’s Board includes UBC INSTRCC Director Dr. Henry Yu, along with representatives from Hua Foundation, Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden and the Chinese Canadian Historical Society of BC.

UBC INSTRCC’s staff and research assistants are working with Chinatown MUSE Society and its partners to develop products to promote the intangible heritage of Vancouver Chinatown.
