What Is the Inspiration For Your Piece?

(The seed of inspiration)

This piece was inspired by our experiences as Asian-Canadian second generation immigrants. Throughout this creative process, we accepted the amalgamation of cultures and brought to light the effects of generational trauma.

What Point In Process Is Your Piece At?

(What stage of growth is your piece at, sapling, sprout, tree, shrub, whatever you feel)

Throughout the navigation of Asian-Canadian identity, Che and Maturino discovered that the content explored leads to a larger discourse. This piece serves as an introduction to their experiences, questions and responses. They hope to spark and engage conversations around this topic.

Approximate or Estimated Duration:
