Love Intersections

Love Intersections is a media arts collective made up of queer artists of colour dedicated to using collaborative art making and relational storytelling to address systemic racism in our communities. We produce intersectional and intergenerational stories from underrepresented communities of colour – centering the invisible, the spiritual, the metaphysical and the imaginary. We believe in deep and meaningful relationships, that intersectionality is a verb and a call to action, that we must cultivate social trust through collective care and community responsibility. Our desire is to provoke (he)artful social change through a lens of love.

2023 MAU Calendar on sale now!

MAU Calendar is a long term artist-initiated project aiming to re-imagine the way souvenirs function as objects and as vehicles to examine lesser-known local histories, cultural identities, and issues affecting the future of Vancouver’s Chinatown. Now in its fifth year, the limited-edition Risograph printed MAU Calendar continues to capture a contemporary portrait of the community while showcasing the work of local artists and community members. In 2021, VALU CO-OP and Love Intersections took over MAU from founder Elisa Yon to carry on the torch of the beloved project.

Hot Pot Talks

“Hot Pot Talks” is a virtual talk show series hosted by David Ng and Jen Sungshine, founding members of the Vancouver Artist Labour Union Co-Operative (VALU CO-OP), which is an artist-run worker co-operative whose goal is to provide flexible, living wage income to artists. VALU CO-OP’s studio is in Chinatown, and the organization has a mandate to do collaborative projects that are accountable to the Chinatown community. “Hot Pot Talks” invites artists, activists, and other cultural workers to share stories and strategies for doing intersectional, anti-racist social justice work through the labour movement, through the co-op model, and through art and culture.
