Ways We Live: Exploring Community Series
The Boundaries of Change

Cities cope with changing demographics.


A printer-friendly version of this page 26 minutes
Closed Captioned

Directed by Michael Simpson
Produced by Heather MacAndrew & David Springbett
Asterisk Productions



How do communities cope with change? The last half of the twentieth century saw a tremendous change in the demographics of many North American cities. Richmond, BC, is a prime example.

A huge wave of Asian immigrants has settled in this land that once belonged exclusively to the Musqueams, and later saw the arrival of mostly Europeans.

How can people learn to accept change, while retaining a sense of their own community? Richmond is trying to create a positive outcome.

Other titles in the series are:

Community Animals - Leading thinkers explore community, work, time, values, and change.

Virtually Intentional - Finding community in the cloister, a commune, and in cyberspace.

Community by Design - Good design of houses and neighborhoods builds community.

Making Shelter - My Home with Others - Co-ops and co-housing provide new models for building community.

Reclaiming Community - Communities in Toronto and Oakland take back and revitalize public spaces.

Ageing with Community - The search for community and independence as we grow old.

Finding Us and Them - Physically and mentally challenged people find community.

On the Road - RV owners leave their home towns and build their own communities.

Maps with Teeth - Bioregional mapping by locals communicates a sense of place and regional identity.

Reviews
"You can't keep community down. Give people a little encouragement and a few tools, and they'll recreate the sense of community spirit in any available cracks and crannies in our otherwise alienated culture...These stories...are upbeat, encouraging - and replicable."
Communities

"This is not an indulgent journey into nostalgia, but an exploration of the people we have become, touching on our diversity as well as our similarities."
Orion Afield

"What (the producers) found was a growing belief and faith in the community as the cure for social ills like poverty, crime and estrangement from other people...It is precisely because WAYS WE LIVE is politically astute, without being partisan, that it is so compelling."
Alex Strachan, Vancouver Sun
