Discover our active community collaborations and learn more about working with us.
The work the Garden does in collaboration with our community partners is a fundamental component of our daily operations, and helps us work toward our mandate of building cultural connections.
We work regularly with community groups, festivals, and partners based throughout Chinatown and the Downtown Eastside in various ways, whether simply as a venue, a collaborator, or a core partner.
