ABOUT Speak my language  ​|   關於「聽我說吧」

Speak My Language is a storytelling media arts project for and by low-income Chinese seniors to share their experiences of language and cultural barriers in accessing healthcare, while exploring individual and collective healing and envisioning a culturally accessible healthcare system.

This project is a collection of five radio documentaries highlighting the experiences of Chinese elders facing barriers to access in the BC healthcare system. Created through collaborations between youth and seniors, Speak My Language promotes a greater awareness of accessibility in healthcare, while teaching community members media production skills and building intergenerational connections. 

These radio docs have been produced under the mentorship of Rachel Lau

Speak My Language「聽我說吧」是一個社區參與的新媒體藝術項目,希望透過聲音廣播的方式去傳播華人社區低收入長者的心聲,分享他們在卑詩省醫療系統中遇到的語言障礙和文化差異。在探索和撫平這些經歷的過程中,我們共同展望一個更有文化包容,讓更多人能真正享受到服務的醫療系統。

 

該項目包括五部重點突出華人長者在卑詩省醫療經歷的系列聲音紀錄片,由青年採訪錄製長者故事,共同製作而成。透過這個跨世代合作的平台,「聽我說吧」希望提高大眾對醫療系統使用性的話題關注和討論,為社區成員提供學習運用新媒體創作的機會,並且從中促進兩代的聯繫與理解。

以上聲音紀錄片由Rachel Lau 劉可莉指導。
