Speak my language

Speak My Language is a storytelling media arts project for youth and Chinese seniors to share experiences of language and cultural barriers in accessing healthcare, explore individual and collective healing, and envision a culturally accessible healthcare system. The radio docs were launched at a community event in March 2020. You can listen to the radio docs here.

Chinatown Choose to move

Funded and supported by United Way of the Lower Mainland and UBC Hip and Health Centre, we provide coaching and opportunities for seniors with mobility challenges to exercise and improve their physical health. Seniors will participate in motivational meetings with their peers and have one-on-one meetings with an Activity Coach to track their progress. This program took place from 2018-2020.
