Event: Virtual event Ancestors in our Attics by Catherine Clement
Date: May 1st 2021 (Saturday) / 5:15pm – 6:15pm (PST)
Pre-registration: Register here.
Community curator Catherine Clement will explore how stories of migration have been rediscovered and brought back to life through objects found, yet forgotten, in our homes. Through her decade-long, ground-breaking work collecting the hidden photographs of Vancouver Chinatown’s first and most prolific photographer, Yucho Chow – to her current project locating surviving C.I. documents used to monitor, control and intimidate early Chinese in Canada – Catherine will show how each piece helps reveal a rich story.
The event will feature remarks from The Honourable Dr. Vivienne Poy and will be MC’ed by CBC’s Gloria Macarenko.
The live-streamed event will take place on Youtube at 5:15pm (PDT) on May 1st, 2021.
