We would like to invite you to an upcoming community dialogue event in Chinatown featuring guest speakers from the W.O.W. Project in New York.

The purpose of the evening is to Reimagine Chinatown and strengthen community relations by bringing together different neighbourhood stakeholders to identify mutual interests that can be collectively pursued.


Learn about a successful socially-minded business model from New York and share your own vision for the neighbourhood. Then hear from other community members during a moderated panel featuring speakers from Chinatown’s business owners, family associations/property owners, and the resident art community.

Join the conversation by emailing your own questions to A selection of questions will be presented anonymously during the panel.
