Indian Summer Festival 2017

A Tale of Two Markets Panel Discussion


This event is co-presented by SFU Woodwards, with support from the SFU City Program.


Vancouver’s Chinatown and Punjabi Market sit in an urban twilight zone – the question is whether they are at a sunrise or a sunset. For a hundred and thirty-five years in the case of Chinatown, and half a century in the case of Punjabi Market, these two neighbourhoods have been more than just places where commerce happens. They have been the heart of their communities, nurturing businesses, human relationships, artists, food systems and cultural legacies. Today they stand on the brink of extinction. How do we imagine their future?


PANEL DISCUSSION

What is the role of places such as Chinatown and Punjabi Market in the face of global flows of people and capital shaped by local histories of exclusion, marginalization, and colonization? How does a civic memory in Vancouver get developed, shared, and erased? Who gets to determine this? These are questions that are not only about these neighborhood, but about how to build cities beyond just buildings. Our panel of thinkers is steered by noted urban planner Andy Yan and features Melissa Fong, Tyler Russell, Meera Bains, and Paneet Singh.


FREE –members of the public welcome to attend. Registration required.
