Zine Launch / “Dreaming Hand-in-Hand” by Yarrow Intergenerational Society for Justice

March 24 @ 5:00 pm 8:00 pm PDT

On Thursday, March 24th from 5-8pm, join Massy Arts and Yarrow Intergenerational Society for Justice for the in-person launch and exhibition of their community zine: “Dreaming Hand-in-Hand: An Intergenerational Chinatown Zine”. This self-published zine is a collection of collages created by Chinese youth and seniors depicting their hopes and dreams for Chinatown.

At the event, the original works featured in the zine will be exhibited and the zine will be available for purchase. The contributing youth and senior artists will be in attendance. This project was made possible through the Community Arts Grant, awarded by the City of Vancouver.

The event will be hosted at the Massy Arts Gallery, at 23 East Pender Street in Chinatown, Vancouver.

The zine launch and exhibition is free + open to all of our community, and registration is mandatory.

Visitors will be free to browse the exhibition, purchase a zine, and connect with any contributing artist who are present. However, due to our current safety measures under the pandemic, each visit is limited to 50 minutes, and the capacity limit per hour is 35 people. Please select a time on our Eventbrite page to make an appointment.

Covid Protocols: For all in-person events, attendees must provide proof of vaccination, wear a mask (N95 masks are encouraged and recommended as they offer the best protection), and consent to having their temperature checked at the front door. We ask that if you are showing any symptoms, that you stay home. Thank you kindly.

About Yarrow Intergenerational Society for Justice

Yarrow Intergenerational Society for Justice 世代同行會 supports youth and low-income immigrant seniors in Chinatown and the Downtown Eastside. We build power in our community through intergenerational relationship building, and by helping seniors overcome language and cultural barriers to services that meet their basic needs.

We combine service provision and grassroots organizing, with a core belief that service work is political and that as a community, we have the tools we need to take care of one another. We empower seniors and youth to work together to improve their communities and tackle the difficult problems of oppression and violence.

Our vision is of a Chinatown that is intergenerational and thriving, with accessible and culturally relevant services and an environment that cherishes our seniors and youth.
