The Youth Collaborative for Chinatown will be hosting its Hot+Noisy summer series finale on Saturday September 12 from 5-8pm (we’re doing it a little earlier as the days are getting shorter, sun sets at 7:32PM)! “BYOPP” means bring your own poh-poh (or other family members or friends) to our all-ages event.

Paired with our ever popular Chinatown Mahjong Social will be activities for families and kids of all ages in celebration of the upcoming Mid-Autumn Festival (中秋節 joong chuw jeet), including:
Lantern-making with community artists Vanessa Grondin and Ken Lum. Bring an old glass jar to turn into a DIY lantern to bring home.
Stories and games with youth from Little Lantern | 小灯笼 | |小燈籠 Chinese Learning Magazine
Our Chinatown Mahjong Socials offer community free play of mahjong and other games (Chinese chess, Chinese checkers, Big Two aka Chinese Poker 鋤大D). Don’t know how to play mahjong? Pick it up fast under one of our gifted teachers or a patient poh-poh.

Couple your visit with another event happening in Chinatown on the day:
Centre A, 4-6PM: Artist Talk by Le Brothers of Underlying
Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden, 7-10PM: Special Opening for Not The Dao
Chinese Cultural Centre: Calligraphy Demos 1:00-2:30PM and Artist Tour 2:30-3:30PM, for A Chorus of Songs calligraphy and seal carving exhibition

It Takes a Community! We Can’t Play Without Your Help!
This is a collaborative, volunteer-powered, labour of love. We can’t do it alone.
If you would like to help out, we need:

For Saturday Sept 12:
Event volunteers, including set-up (from 4PM) and take-down
Mahjong teachers and facilitators
Seniors chaperones (help walk Chinatown seniors back to their residence)
We could use a few extra chairs – please a lawn chair if you have one!

Long-term support:
Donations to help cover our core operations, including transporting and/or renting equipment, buying art supplies
Event organization
Graphic design
Any other skills or passions you’d like to contribute!
