Jim YC Lin

Jim is the Taiwanese-Canadian creator of Island Folklore. He enjoys learning about people—world cultures, economies, languages and philosophies—and started this project to explore his own heritage after completing his Hon. B.A. in 2015 at the University of Toronto.

Susan Chang, Ph.D.

Susan is a Taiwanese-Canadian artist, historian and the founder of BHT Studio. She earned her doctorate at the University of British Columbia in 2013—researching Chinese art history and indigenous Taiwanese textiles. She teaches in Hsinchu, Taiwan and advises the Island Folklore project.


Island Folklore is also supported by a dedicated community of volunteers whose various contributions make this endeavour possible!
