PCHC-MoM Special Event

Family History with a Smartphone – A Workshop Series

Family History (2)

Do you have an elder in your family who has stories to tell but few members of the family have heard them? Would you like to learn how to record and preserve the stories of struggle and triumph of your parents or grandparents for your own children and grandchildren to know? Learn how through this two-part workshop offered by the Pacific Canada Heritage Centre in partnership with UBC Asian Library. Learn how stories are gathered, and how the histories of Asian migrants to British Columbia and Canada can be exhibited as an heirloom for generations to come.

There is a nominal fee of $5 for registration for a workshop with film makers, oral historians, and experienced students trained through the Asian Canadian and Asian Migration Studies program at UBC. Attendance for our initial Information Session is free.

PCHC’s “Family History with a Smartphone” workshop series is a part of explorASIAN 2016, a month-long festival of Vancouver Asian Heritage. We encourage all cultures and generations to come out — bring your grandfather, granddaughter, great uncle, niece, nephew!
