Suzhou Alley Women’s Mural Exhibit

All Day
Brighouse

Description

What was the role of women in Vancouver’s Chinatown? Learn more by visiting the Suzhou Alley Women’s Mural Exhibit at the Brighouse Branch!

The Suzhou Alley Women’s Mural tells the remarkable stories of the women who helped shape Vancouver’s Chinatown over the last century. Based on many years of archival research, in-depth interviews, and community engaged activities, the mural celebrates rarely told stories of the Chinese community in Canada.

For this special Asian Heritage Month exhibition, a section of the mural will be unveiled on the Main Floor of the Brighouse Branch. Additionally, there will be a display of 15 unique Mail Art for Art projects created by community members in 2021, and an opportunity to add your voice to the project through a digital postcard.

Come explore the mural and share your stories to contribute to a project that celebrates the women in our lives and communities.
