The Planting Imagination Team is a group of Chinatown community organizations and X University (Ryerson) Toronto researchers who are working together to bring the local community together to come up with new visions for the future of Chinatown.
We’re working with project partners and local organizations to recruit up to 40 diverse Chinatown Community Activators from across the Chinatown community who will work together with community facilitators to co-design a community garden at Cecil Community Centre.
This project aims to promote community resilience, reduce stress and stigma, and support the affected groups in Chinatown through the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as ongoing displacement, by making use of VR co-creation and other tools of architectural design.
The Project is led by Prof. Linda Zhang of X University and in collaboration from Project Protech. Drs. Josephine Wong, Kenneth P Fung, Alan Li and Mandana Vahabi are part of the investigators’ Team.
