A Seat at the Table explores historical and contemporary stories that detail the struggle of belonging for Chinese Canadians in British Columbia.

Food and restaurant culture are used as an entry point for the exhibition, with the project telling stories that reveal the diversity of the immigrant experience and of the communities that immigrants develop.

Themes of racism, agency, belonging, resilience, and reparation are all addressed, with each component playing a key part in painting the complex picture of being a Chinese migrant – or the descendant of one – in British Columbia.
