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.
Love Intersections x VALU CO-OP (Vancouver Artists Labour Union Co-Operative) presents: Hot Pot Talks! Hosted by Jen Sungshine & David Ng, Hot Pot Talks is a weekly series live-streaming to YouTube and Facebook every Wednesday at 5pm PST where we have free flowing conversations with artists, activists, chefs, performers, poets, and community organizers, about what it means to be a cultural worker working with communities. In season 2, Jen and David continue these conversations on topics ranging from anti-Asian racism, BIPOC futurity, Chinatown solidarity, diasporic food cultures, and interrogating the boundaries between everyday activism, “fine art”, and cultural work. Join us around the hot pot table!
