WHAT NEW CULTURAL PROGRAMS AND ASSETS DO WE NEED? Virtual roundtable discussion about the future of Calgary Chinatown.

About this Event

Topic #3: New Cultural Assets

Chinatown is one of Calgary’s most distinctive cultural communities. It is uniquely positioned to leverage opportunities within the city’s growing creative and culture industry. There is incredible depth to be found in the community's history and culture, if one takes the time to explore and get to know it.

By adding new cultural assets to what already exits and modifying traditional ones for greater appeal, there is an opportunity to attract to Chinatown those who do not identify naturally with the area, as well as younger people, particularly those who grew up there and want to explore and learn about their culture.

Discussion Topics

  • Programs – what cultural programs and activities are a good opportunity for Chinatown?
  • Assets – what additional cultural assets does Chinatown need and where could they be located?
  • Innovation – what opportunities do we see for fostering innovation and a creative economy?


This is for anyone with an interest in Calgary Chinatown, and who wants to discuss the experiences, culture and future opportunities of this unique community.

Are you an artist or otherwise interested in culture and creativity, and do you have ideas on what would make Chinatown's arts and culture offering more vibrant? Then we are particularly interested in what you have to say!




This will be a virtual discussion with opportunity for everyone to speak. The session is not recorded for the public to view, except for note-taking purposes. An anonymized summary of the outcomes will be shared with the public.

Online Platform

Registration is required. We will send you a session link one day before the event and will post this link on the online event page as well.
