Do you know your community? How did Holland Village get its name? Where is Dempsey Hill located? Why is Kwan Im Thong Hood Cho Temple always crowded? What is the history of those buildings that have never been inside? What are the inextricable connections between the Chinese-style buildings in those communities and us?


As “social distancing” becomes a phrase of the past, it is time for us to rediscover our community once again. We sincerely invite all to join us on a journey of cultural exploration, to learn and experience the Chinese culture that is present all around us in our community. Please note that this workshop will be conducted in Chinese.
