Chinatowns: Reclaiming places through art
FREE ENTRANCE — First come, first served
As part of the Let’s confront racism together program by Festival Accès Asie.
Artists engaging with Chinatowns in Montreal and Quebec City through their creative practice highlight the role of stories in reclaiming places or a sense of place.
