Incorporated as a non-profit organization in British Columbia, the Pacific Canada Heritage Centre-Museum of Migration Society aims to foster a deeper and more inclusive understanding of Canada’s history, and to build a museum of migration on the West Coast. For now, it functions as a “Museum Without Walls”, offering interactive educational programs, such as lectures, workshops, storytelling circles, intercultural guided walking tours, community celebrations and oral history projects. It also serves as an intercultural learning hub where Canadians and others will:

    • learn about the missing Pacific Canada stories;
    • research and share their family stories;
    • examine the relationships between immigrants and host communities, including their interaction with First Nations peoples; and
    • explore the past, present and future of Canada, as well as what it means to be Canadian.

  王超群, M.H.

In the mid-1960s, Wong Chiu-Kwan learned the art of acting from Master Tam San-San, who excelled in playing the role of the female lead in Cantonese opera. She studied “cheung hong” from Master Lau Wing-Chuen. In the 1980s she performed throughout South East Asia, and became a leading female artist in Cantonese opera after she returned to Hong Kong in the nineties. She is famous for playing female military roles, especially as the general on bound feet. Over the years she has partnered with many leading male artists, including Man Chi- Sui, Yuen Siu-Fai, Lo Ka-Ying, Ng Chin-Fung, Lung Kwun-Tin, Lee Lung, among others in forming various Cantonese Opera Troupes.

Apart from being famous for her mastery of the art of performing on bound feet, she is also recognized for her contributions in promoting Cantonese opera education and community work. In 2010 she was honoured as The Artist of the Year (Opera) by the Hong Kong Arts Development Council, and awarded a certificate by the Home Affairs Bureau; in 2018 she was appointed as the Artistic Director of the Cantonese Opera Rookies’ Performance Series hosted by the Chinese Artists Association of Hong Kong.
