Understanding the Model
A Museum Advisory Report was completed in the spring of 2018 that provided some preliminary insight into options for the establishment of a Chinese Canadian Museum in B.C. This report identifies the opportunity for a “hub and spoke” style of museum. In this model, a central “hub” that attracts visitors on the basis of a range of artifacts and exhibits and other, additional attractions located off-site as “spokes,” potentially across the province, at sites with historical and/or cultural relevance to the Chinese-Canadian experience in B.C.
The public engagement process will help to inform what could be part of the ‘hub and spoke’ concept. The preliminary vision includes a hub in Vancouver Chinatown and spokes at locations across B.C.
