Join us for our official launch event on Friday November 18th 2022!
We are thrilled to announce that CultureBrew.Art (CBA) is officially OPEN! With its national searchable database of Indigenous and racialized artists who work in the performing, literary, and media arts, CBA is an essential resource for anyone wanting to find and collaborate with BIPOC artists, as well as BIPOC artists wanting to find and connect with each other.
To celebrate, we are hosting a nationwide virtual launch event featuring award-winning actor and writer Jean Yoon – best known for her work as Mrs. Kim on Kim’s Convenience – as Keynote Speaker! The celebration kicks off with a welcome by xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) actor/playwright Quelemia Sparrow, with award-winning actor, writer, director and producer Omari Newton as our host.
Join us for a free-wheeling conversation as Jean talks TV celebrity versus the trenches of Canadian theatre, balancing artistic pursuits with advocacy for equity, and finding one’s power and voice as a racialized artist, with CBA’s Co-Directors, Valerie Sing Turner and Anju Singh. Valerie and Anju, who are also the Co-Artistic Producers of Visceral Visions, the non-profit arts society that created and developed CultureBrew.Art, will remain online for another 30 minutes after the event ends to answer any questions.
This event will be supported by ASL interpreters, and is free to attend! We also welcome donations, which will go toward furthering our goals of fostering connection, collaboration, and community among BIPOC artists and cultural workers in Canada, as well as expanding access to work opportunities.
