Where are you really from? Chinese Roots, Genealogy and Identity (July 13, 2017)

Where are you really from? Chinese Roots, Genealogy and Identity

 

This will be a casual discussion where Chinese Canadian youth, adults and seniors are invited to drop in and share their experiences about how they identify with their Chinese heritage: how does the concept of ‘roots’ affect your identity and culture as Chinese Canadians? Do you feel connected or disconnected from your ‘roots’? How much do you actually know about your ancestors, and what can you learn from genealogy (a.k.a. researching our family history)?

Date: Thursday, July 13, 2017

Time: 7pm – 8:30pm

Location: Centre for Social Innovation (215 Spadina Avenue, Toronto, ON, M5T 2C7)

Room: Innovation Lab Room, 4th floor

Pre-registration: Please confirm your attendance via email (info@ccnctoronto.ca)

Facilitator: This talk will be led by Clotilde Yap, project officer at pioneering genealogy start-up My China Roots (www.mychinaroots.com).

My China Roots helps overseas Chinese around the world to trace their ancestry, put their roots into context, and visit their ancestral village in China. During this talk, Clotilde will also be available to assist and answer questions of people interested in tracing their Chinese ancestry.

Art & Food Storytelling Festival (2016)

Art & Food Storytelling Festival (2016)

About:

The Chinese Canadian National Council Toronto Chapter (CCNCTO) and ALPHA Education partnered together on a new initiative entitled The Chinese Seniors’ Storytelling Workshop. Using storytelling in the form of art and food, senior participants went through a series of workshops to foster individual expression and provide them with the opportunity to share their knowledge and experiences with the broader Chinese community. The project aimed to address the issue of social isolation amongst Chinese seniors and to promote intergenerational exchange with Toronto’s youth through the process of letter writing and art sharing.

To mark the conclusion of the Chinese Seniors’ Storytelling Workshop series, CCNCTO and ALPHA Education held a final celebration, the Art & Food Storytelling Festival.

To learn more about the workshop series, check out the Chinese Seniors’ Storytelling Workshop.

Join us and many others as we march and chant for Love, Freedom, and Support through Chinatown. Love and support can stretch across Generations, and we want to showcase that connection through our event.

Friends, family and allies are welcome!

Date: Saturday, May 21, 2016

Location: Market 707 (707 Dundas Street, Dundas/Bathurst)

Rundown:

  • 12:00PM – 1:00PM | Speakers
  • 1:00PM – 1:45PM | March
  • 2:00PM – 2:45PM | Performers

Wear: Pink

What is PinkDot?

  • PinkDot is a non-profit movement originating in Singapore by a group of individuals who care deeply and support the belief that everyone deserves the freedom to love. While we are fortunate to have marriage equality in Toronto, LGBT Asians in Toronto still face challenges from their families, friends, and the greater Asian community. With little conversation about being LGBT and Asian, this under represented group still struggles with coming out to their family and friends. We are gathering in Chinatown to show there is support and love in our community for LGBT Asians who are still trying to find a place where they feel comfortable to be themselves. It is an event for everyone; straight, gay, and allies, who support the belief that everyone deserves the freedom to love.
  • Show your support for LGBTQ+ Asians by wearing pink and marching down Chinatown for International Day Against Homophobia/Transphobia and Asian Heritage Month!

____________________________________________
#PinkDotTO (Toronto Chinatown Pride March) is organized by ACAS (Asian Community AIDS Services) and Chinese Canadian National Council Toronto Chapter. Special thanks to Scadding Court Community Centre and Market 707 – Toronto’s First Shipping Container Market for providing us with the space for the event.
