Sur le seuil de la porte: Histoire et expériences vécues de la collectivité chinoise
Working with community partners, the York Region District School Board Museum & Archives, students from the University of Toronto's Museum Studies program, and Markham Museum created a virtual and traveling exhibition that explores the history of Chinese immigration to York Region.
“We want to tell the story of resilience and perseverance of an important community in Markham and York Region. The Chinese community is underrepresented in our exhibition schedule and our museum collections,” says Janet Reid, Curator, Markham Museum. “This community-driven exhibit will celebrate our Chinese residents, and also engage and educate the wider community through a multi-part virtual and touring exhibition program.”
The in-person exhibition launches on September 28 2023 at Markham Museum.
