Guided by two qualified facilitators, Sonmin Bong and Jen Sung, this talk asks participants to explore Kiberlé Crenshaw’s model of intersectionality in relation to artistic communities.
“Sonmin Bong is a first-generation Korean immigrant feminist who works, plays and, most importantly, loves on unceded Coast Salish territories.She is a host and producer of Vancouver’s explicitly feminist radio show, The F Word Media Collective, on Vancouver Co-op Radio CFRO. Her passion and interests include intersectionality, racial justice, food politics, cultural exchange, and interdependence. She is fuelled by womxn of colour’s righteous outrage, resistance, ancestral knowledge, and wisdom.”
“Jen Sung, also goes by artist name Jen Sungshine, is a queer Taiwanese artist-activist based in Vancouver, BC. A facilitator by trade, she works with creative technology and social justice media to evolutionize and revolutionize QTBIPOC visibility and community-based work through Love Intersections, Our City of Colours, Out in Schools and the Social Justice Institute at the University of British Columbia. Jen’s artistic practice involves learning through unlearning; and instead of calling you out, she wants to call you in, to make artful social change with her. In the audience, she looks for art in your interruption.”
