Speak My Language is a storytelling media arts project for and by low-income Chinese seniors to share their experiences of language and cultural barriers in accessing healthcare, while exploring individual and collective healing and envisioning a culturally accessible healthcare system.

This project is a collection of five radio documentaries 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.

These radio docs have been produced under the mentorship of Rachel Lau.

Speak My Language「聽我說吧」是一個社區參與的新媒體藝術項目,希望透過聲音廣播的方式去傳播華人社區低收入長者的心聲,分享他們在卑詩省醫療系統中遇到的語言障礙和文化差異。在探索和撫平這些經歷的過程中,我們共同展望一個更有文化包容,讓更多人能真正享受到服務的醫療系統。


以上聲音紀錄片由Rachel Lau 劉可莉指導。
