BFA, University of Regina (2015)

Biography

As a first year MA student at the Institute for Gender, Race, Sexuality and Social Justice, I would like to further investigate what it means to be of mixed race in Canada and how to navigate the space in-between cultures. I feel it would be of benefit to develop research on this theme in relation to the theory of the Third Space. As I have previously completed a BFA, I would also like to explore how I can use my art practice as a means of communication and “a way of knowing” in relation to these themes.
