Chinatowns have long been spaces to reconnect with Asian heritage and connect disparate communities around the world. They also have a long history of erasure from our historical records and imagination. This continues to be true due to rapid gentrification throughout our cities, and especially now due to the heightened xenophobia surrounding COVID-19.
With thoughtful discussion facilitated by Tea Base, we talk to our Quarantine Qapsule (QQ) Mentor Team to discuss the significance of Chinatowns in our everyday life and why archiving the voices of Asian-Canadians matters today.
This Mentor Team will be working with selected applicants of the Quarantine Qapsule mentorship program to produce a unique contribution to the QQ archive.
The Quarantine Qapsule and this program aims to build bridges between Asian-Canadian communities across Ontario and document the living history of these communities.
ABOUT QUARANTINE QAPSULE
What will we remember during this time?
Quarantine Qapsule (QQ) is a digital archive of the Asian Canadian experience during the COVID-19 pandemic.
As a “time capsule” of the quarantine period, we are looking for creative contributions from all members of our community. We want to hear your stories of resilience, hope, and self-discovery!
Persons self-identifying as Asian Canadian (and living in Ontario) are invited to submit video, musical or visual art to the QQ. No fancy equipment required, art can be created anywhere in any style, creativity cannot be stifled!
This fall Ignite Gallery will continue its 40+ year history of supporting emerging talent by showcasing artists selected in our annual call for submissions. Our hope is to present more of their works to you IRL in 2021, but until then, stay tuned for a series of virtual exhibitions on our webpage and behind the scenes videos posted to our instagram:
