Description

What lies ahead for Toronto’s Chinatowns? Reimagining Chinatown attempts to answer this through a collection of speculative fiction stories written by Chinatown youth. This anthology, accompanied by a short documentary film, collectively reimagines Chinatown to bring about a more generative and expansive future, confronting the urgent need to ensure Toronto’s Chinatown remains an affordable, safe and culturally meaningful home for all.

These nine stories by Chinatown youth describe Chinatowns: those of the past, those that were moved, those that are redesigned and lose their character, and those of the future. They describe the importance of Chinatown as a source of Chinese identity, a familiar meeting place for people, and a place to find foods, ingredients, and medicines not found or understood elsewhere. By speculating on the year 2050, their stories offer a visionary act of resistance, uncovering new possible futures and shedding light on untold pasts.
