I was born in an immigrant suburb of Toronto to an Armenian family who came to Canada by way of the Syria/Lebanon. I arrive in the world today as a queer mother and an interdisciplinary creative, writer, producer, and facilitator. I have a BFA/BA in film and political science (Concordia University) and an MA in expressive art therapy (European Graduate Institute). I am currently pursuing an MA/PhD in community, liberation, and eco psychologies (Pacifica Graduate Institute).
The bedrock of my creative background is in visual art, performance, film, and immersive storytelling. My work is primarily collaborative and is interested in ancestral reclamation, diasporic futurism, and radical imaginaries. I have published both literary and academic work, internationally exhibited and presented visual and digital artwork, films and staged performances, curated art spaces and events, and facilitated workshops across Canada and USA. Most recently, I have been working on my dissertation, working freelance under Saboteur Productions (founder) and collaboratively through Kalik Arts (co-founder).
I would love to discuss ways to collaborate with artists in the County. If you have an idea, or just want to say hi, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.Browse Artists
