Kick out gentrification in Chinatown with a free kung fu and lion dancing workshop in the heart of Chinatown with the Chau Luen Athletic Club.
When: Saturday, September 2 from 2:00 to 5:00pm
Where: Chinatown Memorial Plaza next to 105 Keefer
You’ll learn the basics of kung fu, lion dancing, and drumming from one of Chinatown’s longstanding benevolent society athletic clubs. There will also be a kung fu and lion dancing demo, and a post-workshop snack social to re-energize and connect with the community!
All ages welcome. Beginner-friendly!
This is continual protest of Beedie’s gentrifier condo development at 105 Keefer.
Things to bring:
- Comfortable shoes and attire
