Where: Chinatown Memorial Plaza next to 105 Keefer
Cost: Free!

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.
