About this Event

The hua foundation dried goods series is back by popular demand for a special moon festival edition. Join us as we highlight Chinese dried goods in a festive environment to make tang yuan dumplings, and dive into the importance of dried goods shops as cultural assets.

Tang Yuan is a sweet filled dumpling made from glutinous rice flour, filled with various fillings like sesame, red bean paste, or ground peanuts and served in a sweet ginger broth. The round white dumplings are often likened to the moon. Join our facilitator Kacey Ng, ChoiBox CSA volunteer and local chinatown organizer in making these delicious treats.

Kacey Ng (伍啟詩) is a Hong Kong-Chinese-Canadian Settler on unceded Coast Salish Territories.

As a lifelong learner, she embodies an eager curiosity towards relationship building and connecting with people through places while critically examining the intersections of oppression and marginalization in ethnic minority spaces. Kacey is finishing up her final semester with an Honours in Sociology and minors in Urban Studies and Asian-Canadian Asian Migration Studies with intentions to pursue her Masters in Urban Planning. She is now working in balancing teaching assistantships and research assistantships, including, but not limited to the creation of interactive walking tours in Chinatown as an educational tool for students to understand the role of gentrification on Chinese Seniors and local businesses. She has also been examining the conception of the home, comparing the perceptions of folks between Arviat and Vancouver. Apart from her studies, Kacey can be found on long (very long) walks across the city, making food with / for friends, or some variant of procrasti-baking.

This event includes a recipe that is vegetarian but not vegan.

Chinatown House is serviced by the bus lines: 3, 4, 7, 8, 19, 22, 209 and there is metered parking at the front. There is ground-level entrance and the wheelchair accessible button is currently broken, but event organizers are available to assist with opening doors for individuals. The washrooms are binary trans-inclusive, with wheelchair accessible stalls. We are currently addressing how we can increase the accessibility of this space.

We acknowledge that this work is taking place on the ancestral, traditional, unceded and occupied Indigenous territories of the Coast Salish Peoples, and in particular, the hən̓q̓əmin̓əm̓ speaking xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Tsəl̓ílwətaʔɬ /Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) and Skwxwú7mesh Snichim speaking Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) Nations. This land was never surrendered, relinquished, or handed over by these Nations to Canada or British Columbia through a treaty or other means; it is sovereign and unsurrendered.
