Footprints of the Dragon Videos

Chinese National Healthy Living Centre has created an archive recording the occupational engagement of Chinese settlers in London from the 1880s to the present day.

The project, titled 'Footprints Of The Dragon (Voices of the Chinese Community in London)', included an educational programme for school children in London and culminate in an exhibition for Londoners. It was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

A Conference and Celebration Day was held on the 19th July 2008 (Sat). This project was in partnership with London Metropolitan Archives (LMA) and London Chinese Community Network.
