Salt Water City Stories

Thursday November 6, 7pm
Chapel Arts Theatre, 304 Dunlevy

Vancouver by another name: Huam Siu Fao (Salt Water City), the name Chinese immigrants called Vancouver back in the day, retains a memorable place in the hearts of Chinese Canadians. Sid Chow Tan, longtime east-sider, videographer and community activist, hosts this evening of stories, music, video and tribute to those who came before – the mighty Lo Wah Kiu (old overseas Chinese). Special guests include Faye Leung, retired realtor, native Strathconian and personality extraordinaire; artist, educator and filmmaker Karin Lee, whose interest in Chinese Canadian identity informs her work; and Sean Gunn, longtime activist and singer/songwriter performing on electric bass.
