ANNIE ONYI CHEUNG: WALKING DREAMS OF A CHINATOWN,
SOMEWHERE AROUND HERE Artist Annie Onyi Cheung hosts this instalment of Eyelevel gallery’s Food for Thoughts series, using a food tour to craft a vision of what Halifax’s Chinatown might look like. Participants will join the artist in imagining and building a Halifax Chinatown experience (and map) by moving through the city, sampling one food item from each location, while mapping their travels on a shared tablecloth. Wanna take part? Register by emailing Camila at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and dietary restrictions.
