Learn about the objects, stories and lives of Chinese immigrants and those they interacted with in early Vancouver.

This program is a perfect resource for classroom studies on Chinese immigration to Canada.

For the second part of the program, teachers can choose between a Garden Tour, exploring the cultural background of the first Chinese Immigrants, or a mini-Chinatown Walk in our immediate neighbourhood, looking at some of architecture and stories from the early days of Chinatown.

Learn about the style of Chinese painting known as ink and wash painting (shuǐ-mò 水墨). This ancient practice, still alive today, is closely related to calligraphy and was one of the Four Arts practised by Chinese scholars.

Program Description & Details

What do culture and tradition mean to you, your family and your community? In this program, students will ponder that question as they learn about the culture and traditions of our Ming Dynasty family home. Then they will discover the stories and folklore surrounding the 2000 year old Dragon Boat festival and its customs that continue to this day.

Many of the ancient practices surrounding the Dragon Boat Festival are to do with avoiding bad luck: the program ends with students creating their own good luck charm.

Land and Sea Combo: Did you know, the very first Dragon Boat race to take place outside Asia happened in Vancouver? Combine this program with our Dragon Boat Paddle program, run in partnership with Dragon Boat BC. PLEASE NOTE: DRAGON BOAT PADDLING IS CURRENTLY SUSPENDED DUE TO COVID-19 PROTOCOLS. CONTACT US IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN RENTING INDIVIDUAL KAYAKS FOR YOUR CLASS.
