Speak My Language 聽我說吧 is a storytelling media arts project highlighting the experiences of Chinese elders facing barriers to access in the BC healthcare system. Created through collaborations between youth and seniors, Speak My Language promotes a greater awareness of accessibility in healthcare, while teaching community members media production skills and building intergenerational connections.
CJSR is going to broadcast the series (5 English documentaries, 5 Mandarin/Cantonese versions, and an edited recording of the launch event) every second Thursday at 5PM.
