Photography Programme and Exhibition

The London Chinatown Oral History Project is delighted to announce: 'Tracing the Memory of London Chinatown', a show by a group of London-based photographers: Alfred Man, Larissa Alves, Jason Chow, Tina Au, Antonie Breant.

With photographs that aim to present the cultural characteristics and living images of the pioneers of Chinatown in the West End, this exhibition celebrates the development of London Chinatown over the last 50 years.

We hope this series of photographs will highlight the contribution of the Chinese migrants for their hard work, persistence and dedication towards the creation of a significant Chinese community in the UK.

Exhibition Date: 25/2/2013 - 12/3/2013

Children Art Workshop and Exhibition

My Chinatown Community Art Exhibition

The London Chinatown Oral History Project is delighted to present the 'My Chinatown Arts Exhibition'. A collection of art pieces cretaed by Mei Yuk Wong, Keng Ho Fong, Asaki Kan, Man Fai Ma and Ian Vines. This exhibition has been inspired by what the artists have personally taken from reading the interviewees' life stories and what they have learnt about the historical development of London Chinatown and Chinese culture in general.

With this initiative, CMHA aims to eneage artists and members of the public and encourage them to share their vision and experiences of Chinatown's history and its evolution to the present day. The final result is the creation of artwork that expresses an appreciation and a reflection of this significant period in which the heart of the London Chinese community was developed and gave these Chinese people a sense of belonging in London.
