The Asian Arts and Culture Society presented the inaugural BC Dumpling Festival in the Tri-Cities this past August 2022. The festival was a celebration of the diverse community we live in and brought together families, friends, neighbours, community organizations and businesses from different cultures to share food, entertainment and laughter. The festival was the first of its kind in our beautiful community. It was a multicultural, family-friendly event that showcased dumplings from different cultures! Please join us on August 12, 2023!
In April 2021, Gina Chong experienced a racial incident at Lafarge Park in Coquitlam. As a result of the incident, she used art to express her emotions. Here are some black and white photographs taken of friends and family in her community with racist words and words of hope and encouragement for future generations. **May not be suitable for younger children.
