Chinese Oral History Project

The Chinese Oral History Project, which is supported by Heritage Lottery Fund, has been organised by the Chinese Mental Health Association (CMHA) since October 2005.

The Oral History Project started with a series of interviews with the older generation of Chinese living in London. These interviews have provided the material to engage the younger generation in producing a documentary, an educational booklet, and an interactive CD-ROM. This project is a synergy of volunteers from diverse culture backgrounds and has a significant influence in the British Born Chinese community.

The success of the Chinese Oral History Project has gained a place in the China in London events of 2007. These events will take place during February and March 2007 where the project installation, booklet and documentary will be screened at venues across London during this period.Details of all events are listed below. Please check out our website for updated information and look out for the China in London guide that will be available around London from 16th January 2007.
