About this Event

By Us, For Us: Grounding Art in Communities

October 23, 2019 at Chinatown House. 6:30pm to 8:00pm (doors open at 6:00pm)

Discussion Panelists: Beatrix Pang (ZINE COOP, Queer Reads Library), Charlene Sayo (Titas and Tomes)

Introductions: Christina Lee (joss paper library)

Moderator: Y Vy Truong (joss paper library)

What does it mean to create community focused art? How does art facilitate conversations about migrant labour, and create lines of solidarity? For the first public discussion hosted by joss paper library (JPL), we invite the public to join us in a conversation with two artists whose work has centered collaborations with migrant labour communities both in Hong Kong and Vancouver.

By centering this conversation within two different geographic contexts, we can examine how community based arts practices have been critical in raising public awareness to the conditions and realities of migrant labour communities. Beatrix Pang (Hong Kong, ZINE COOP) and Charlene Sayo (Vancouver, Titas and Tomes), will be talking more in depth about their work as artists and community organizers.

This event is supported by Chinatown House and hua foundation.
