Telling Tales in Gold Mountain
Born in Toronto, Bernice Hune retells folklore from China and creates new stories from Canada’s recent past. She recalls elders speaking in Cantonese about the Head Tax, the Chinese Exclusion Act and their determination for social justice. Bernice shares this legacy of stories in performance. Fresh from university, she performed as an actor, and then co-hosted a CBC radio program. Her work in education as a visual artist and an arts educator is widely recognized, and it informs her storytelling.

The World Beyond My Village
Starting from a very young age, Njacko Backo has been curious about the world. He was born into a musical family in a rural village in Cameroon, well isolated from the rest of the world. Despite grave warnings from his family that he would be eaten by cannibals, he was inspired to leave home at the age of 17 to explore, play music, and find his way to Europe. 15 years later, he arrived in Canada with a young family and has built a career as an award-winning professional musician and cultural ambassador for school-aged children in the GTA and beyond. www.njackobacko.com
