Lan Chan-Marples: Live from Edmonton Chinatown – Chinese City Market Stories (2020 Project Accelerator Grant Amount: $7,000)
This new heritage series will explore Chinese experiences that are a departure from the typical Chinese laundries, restaurants, and grocery stores. The first mini-project will focus on Chinese connections to the Edmonton City Market. The relocation of the City Market in the mid-1960s to 97th Street in Chinatown made it convenient for Chinese people to shop there. Twenty-five short oral stories will be collected from Chinese Edmontonians who are willing to share their memories of the City Market. Interviews will be held inside the GWG Building, occupied today by the Edmonton Downtown Farmers Market.
