Sina Bathiae is a composer, Santur player based in Toronto, Canada is known for his unique style and approach toward Persian contemporary music.

Pamela Mordecai is a Jamaican-Canadian who writes poetry, fiction and drama.

She will perform with a dancer to be determined by December 2022 to poems from Mordecai's "De Book of Mary".

The collective's artists will perform excerpts from its 'Covid Creations: Shorts for a Summer of Disruption’ which will feature Ana Groppler with Bradyen Cairns, Jilla Cato, Shannon Litzenberger and Kevin A. Ormsby. These are a number of short pieces that address the importance of disruption as a vehicle for social and artistic transformation invoking Black Lives Matter and self-care.
