Following on from The Good Immigrant – Off The Page at Tara Arts, I’m curating a further panel discussion inspired by The Good Immigrant, this time at Housmans Radical Bookshop. While the panel at Tara looked at the idea of “immigrants” and the overlap (or not) with “people of colour”, this session will focus on skin colour politics, (in)visibility and the intersection between race and gender.
Guests will include:
Jennifer Lim is an actor, filmmaker, a founding member of British East Asian Artists and co-founder of Moongate Productions – a multimodal creative hub committed to developing quality projects that raise the profile of East Asian talent whilst challenging stereotypical portrayals. @xanadujenn
Jules Orcullo is a Filipina-Australian artist and theatre-maker interested in real-time togetherness, our relationships with our bodies, and crossed cultural lines. In 2017, she’s touring phroot sahlad, an Aussie comedy about female sexual dysfunction and cross-cultural experience. @JulesOrcullo
Julia Thanh is a British-born Londoner interested in multiculturalism and representation among minority groups. Thanh uses photography to discover the identity and experience of the second generation British Vietnamese in London. Insta: @vietlondoners
