360 Riot Walk is an interactive walking tour that utilizes 360 video technology to tell the story of the 1907 Anti-Asian Riots in Vancouver. It traces the history and route of the mob that attacked the Chinese Canadian and Japanese Canadian communities following the demonstration and parade organized by the Asiatic Exclusion League in Vancouver. Participants are brought into the social and political environment of the time where racialized communities were targeted through legislation as well as physical acts of exclusion and violence. The soundtrack is available in four languages of the local residents of the period: English, Cantonese, Japanese, and Punjabi.
The tour is approximately two hours in length, followed by a post-tour reflection where refreshments will be served. Sterilized tablets and headphones will be provided. Maximum 10 participants per tour. A $10 refundable deposit is required when registering for the free tours on August 5 and 6. The tours on July 29 and 30 require a fee. Please see Eventbrite for more details.
360 Riot Walk is an artwork by local artist Henry Tsang whose projects explore the spatial politics of history, language, community, food, and cultural translation in relationship to place. His artworks employ video, photography, language, interactive media, food, and convivial events in the form of gallery exhibitions, public art, pop-up street food offerings, curated dinners, and more. Henry teaches at Emily Carr University of Art & Design.
