Working together for a vibrant Chinatown

Chinatown has served as a symbol of how Chinese-Canadians overcame hardships and discrimination, and in the process, helped make Canada a more just society. Today, it's an important part of Vancouver’s cultural identity.

同心協力共建興旺唐人街

唐人街自從成立以來﹐一直是華裔加拿大人在克服困境和對抗歧視的過程中協助加國成為一個更公平社會的標記。時至今日﹐唐人街在溫哥華市的文化身份方面已佔了一個舉足輕重的位置。

Chinatown Transformation Team

The Chinatown Transformation Team (CTT) is a dedicated staff team formed in September 2018 to work with the community and key partners on Chinatown-related work.

The CTT, community, and partners will co-create a plan and implement actions that focus on living heritage and culture for a vibrant Chinatown. Key areas of interest include:

  • Tangible living heritage and culture
  • Intangible living heritage and culture
  • Business and economic development
  • Intergenerational relationships and community capacity building
  • Relationships with communities around Chinatown 

This plan will propose priority projects, actions, partners, and resources to create a new Cultural Heritage Assets Management Plan for Chinatown.

The plan is a key component of the overall process towards a possible UNESCO World Heritage Site application for Chinatown, as adopted by Council on November 1, 2017.

唐人街經濟文化發展專案小組 

唐人街經濟文化發展專案小組(CTT)是在2018年9月時成立﹐這是專責與社區及其他主要夥伴機構合作處理與唐人街相關工作的一個市府職員團隊。

專案小組將會與社區及其他夥伴合作﹐制定一個聚焦於唐人街生活遺產和文化的計劃以及相關行動。這計劃將專注於以下議題﹕

  • 物質生活遺產及文化
  • 非物質生活遺產及文化
  • 商業及經濟發展
  • 跨世代關係及增強社區組織及發展能力
  • 與唐人街周邊的社區建立關係

這計劃將會就優先處理的項目﹑行動﹑夥伴及資源提出建議﹐作為制定「文化遺產及資產管理計劃」的基礎。市議會在2017年11月1日接納了申請將唐人街列為聯合國教科文組織世界文化遺產的建議﹐而這個管理計劃是申遺程序的一個關鍵部份。

What is living heritage?

Living heritage includes traditions or living expressions inherited from our ancestors and passed to our descendants. It can include language, performing arts, social practices, rituals, festive events, and specific knowledge, practices, and skills. 

甚麼是「生活遺產」﹖

生活遺產又稱為非物質文化遺產或生活文化﹐所指的是超越紀念碑及人工創造產品等物質遺產。包括了由祖先遺留給後世的傳統習俗或是生活上的表達。生活遺產亦包括了口述的傳統(語言)﹐表演藝術﹑社會慣例﹑
儀式﹑節日慶典及獨特的知識﹑
慣例及技巧等。
