Making Space: EM Creative Sharing Circle
11:00 - 12:00
narrativesbyus would like to invite members of fellow ethnic minority communities to talk about navigating creative and art spaces as ethnic minorities. Do our identities play a part in our creative process? Join us aboard our spaceship to see how we have been creating space and what more we can all do. We will end the sharing with an open mic opportunity to showcase your poems, songs or any recent artistic endeavours.
narrativesbyus was formed by a group of ethnic minorities (EM) raised in Hong Kong’s local education system. The collective aims to complicate the simplistic identity of “ethnic minority” and all the connotations in the public imagination. The team— Suskihanna GURUNG, Shama MASHROOR, Ian Paolo VILLAREAL, and Merina SUNUWAR— hopes to foster a creative and continuously evolving space for local EMs in Hong Kong through a yearly zine publication that archives community events.
Primarily in English (Cantonese interpretation available upon request)
