Event Details

The aim of this multidisciplinary biennial art conference is to
co-create an inclusive dialogue about racialized mixed identities and lived realities through an intersectional lens.

 

MIXED is a multidisciplinary art conference that provides a space to share our experiences around racialized mixed-race identities through art, discussion and community building. 

 

The 2017 conference theme is "Activism: Within and Without the Family", featuring Sharon Chang, author of Raising Mixed Race! We’d love to hear your stories of resistance and resilience regarding the generational impact of: the 60s scoop, Japanese internment, Chinese head tax, anti-Black racism, etc; as well as how you cope with prejudice within the biological or transracially adoptive family, or even forging a community-based family.

Self Care Throughout the day, active listeners will be available to assist with possible triggering. We will also be featuring a wellness group exercise lead by Dr. Samantha Boshart for some self-care debriefing at the end of the event.


Accessibility We would like to have as many individuals participate in the event by reducing boundaries where possible. An all gender bathroom will be available and the space is wheelchair accessible. Light refreshments will be served, and the event is Pay What You Can, but no one will be turned away at the door. We ask all attendees to come scent-free.


MIXED is meant to be as safe a space as possible for all attendees which means no forms of racism, sexism, ableism, homophobia, discrimination based on age, class, weight, creed, immigration status, xenophobia, transphobia, transmisogyny, cissexism, etc. will be tolerated.
