The Sound Agents are campaigning to protect the heritage buildings and stories of Old Chinatown Liverpool, UK. The aim of this project is to highlight the need for a permanent site specific Chinatown Museum and Community Space, a temporary Museum in a shipping container is planned for May 2017.

The Sound Agents have been awarded £2,500 from the Mayors Fund and private donations from Joan Mason, Walter Fung, Sophie Colligan, John Hollingsworth, Debrea Lewis and one Anonymous donor to pay for planning permission to be submitted to Liverpool City Council and for the development of a dedicated website to house the  Audio/Visual archive 'Liverpool Chinatown Oral History' recorded in 2014 funded by HLF and 2005 funded by LCC. The Agents continue to record personal stories for the project. Contact John and Moira Thesoundagents@gmx.co.uk
