Legacy of Limehouse Chinatown: Tracing the histories of London’s old Chinatown

ICA Limehouse Legacy 舊華埠記憶尋找東倫敦舊唐人街歷史

In 2010 ICA was awarded a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund to deliver a Chinese heritage project: Legacy of Limehouse Chinatown. The project was conducted in collaboration with Tower Hamlets Local History Library and Archives and the Islington Museum. Starting in August 2010, the 14-month project aimed to trace, record, preserve, celebrate and disseminate the history of the earliest settlements of Chinese migrants in Limehouse – London’s first Chinatown. Through interviews, the project collected items of cultural heritage, uncovered local stories and memories from late 19th century up to the 1960s.  The oral histories collected from this project have been deposited at Tower Hamlets Local History Library and Archives and Islington Museum to be made available to the public.

依士靈頓華人協會《長者服務推介》計劃

配合依士靈頓市政府的老人照護與支援革新議程,本協會獲得市政府之創新基金 (Innovation Fund)撥款,由四月份開始推行《長者服務推介》計劃,向長者們推介老人福利與支援的新概念以及相關的申請途徑。由於每一個需要照護與支援的長者老人都 有他(她)個別的需要,故此,在新的途徑中,他(她)們將可以根據個別的情況,向政府申請福利和支援的個人配套,並雇用私人照護助理,這樣將能夠更貼切地 滿足每位長者個別的需要。如果你想多了解詳情,歡迎向計劃統籌高玉梅(高姑娘)詢問。

2007 CEYE Musicals ‘Changing Fortunes’

“力爭上游”音樂劇

2004 ‘When Yellow River meets the Thames’

"當黃河遇上泰晤士"音樂劇活青社一巨獻

ICA Changing fortunes依士靈頓華人協會之青少年計劃 – 活青社已於2004年4月份,成功於倫敦史拿劇院上演一連兩場的音樂劇"當黃河遇上泰晤士",約400觀眾入場觀看。從構思、策劃、發展到實際綵排,這一 群滿腔熱情又大無畏精神的年輕人共花了一年時間去籌辦。此音樂劇觀眾反應熱烈,迴響巨大,令台前幕後的工作人員非常鼓舞。許多年青人因此蠢蠢欲動,希望協 會日後能有更多機會讓他們一展才藝。

Creativity is a powerful tool in distracting our young from destructive influences. Under Perry Fung’s leadership a group of 12-28 year olds wrote, produced and performed two bilingual musicals  – ‘When Yellow River meets the Thames’ and ‘Changing Fortunes’.   Both scripts drew on daily family lives in Britain’s Chinese community, reflecting the perennial issues of generation gap, friendships and troubled relationships with siblings. . The experience gave ICA’s young participants pride and a thought provoking platform upon which to discuss these sensitive issues. Realising that family problems cannot be tackled without parental involvement some dysfunctional families in the community were motivated to rebuild positive relationships through practical parenting classes and individual counselling.

2005年秋天,專業戲劇老師李域基(Ms. Veronica Needa) 為協會活青社會員推出共八堂的戲劇藝術訓練課程,包括舞台管理、導演、創意寫作。此系列為李域基所申請的英倫藝術局基金撥出項目,"讓我們的故事出臺"一 部分,又透過藝術局的多元發展主任鮑皓昭小姐的支持,協會獲得英倫藝術局的小量基金作為劇本創作,由專業編劇黃健勝先生帶領一班活青社青年人寫下第二齣歌 舞劇本"力爭上游"。

繼《樂在廚中》健康食譜成功推廣家庭廚樂後,2006年協會婦女組再次得到“國家獎劵基金”贊助,創作印行《孩子健康 父母心安》健康食譜一書。是次出版重點放在親子關係。協會婦女組冀望透過健康美食,拉近父母與子女距離,促進兩代和諧關係。

This lively book, different in emphasis from Wok with Me (2004), aims to promote better relationships between parents and children through their collaborative efforts in making healthy dishes.

Millennium Faces – Chinese Older People in the UK: a collection of Black & White photographs

ICA Millenium faces《千禧臉譜 ─ 英國華人長者黑白攝影集》

2002年,在”獎劵基金”資助下,協會自行編輯出版《千禧臉譜──英國華人長者黑白攝影集》一書。此攝影集由香港著名攝影家黃勤帶先生操刀,並有吳呂南博士撰寫導言〈英國華人移民簡史〉一文,極具藝術欣賞及歷史研究價值。

“紅塵百劫,緣會萬千,每一個人都有一個永恆的故事”。如吳呂南博士文中所言,華人來英歷史一直未有學者研究。協會出版此書,正正填補了這段應記而未記的歷史。

是年為協會創立十六週年。此書出版亦為慶祝協會成立十六年之喜。
