This panel presents powerful Asian voices of performers, playwrights and theatre administrators in the Montreal & Toronto performance arts community.
Together we will discuss the theme of Recognition, Resilience & Resolve – in celebration of the incredible work Asian-Canadian artists have already contributed to theatre and performing arts. Our conversation will also be recognizing the perseverance and courage our panellists and others have shown, as they make their voices heard.
This panel is part of Youtheatre’s developing YouShare program which aims to empower the local creative community by bringing artists together to learn, share, and explore.

While this is a digital event, we want to acknowledge that this event is happening on the unceded, traditional territory of the Kanien’kehá:ka. Those affiliated with this event are immigrants, some recent, some generations ago – and we are grateful for the opportunity to live on the land where we are treated with greater dignity and humanity. We recognize however that we benefit from the ongoing colonization of this land, and thus that this acknowledgement is a process that requires more than a singular statement. We are folks constantly seeking out means to research and educate ourselves as to how to best honour the Indigenous communities and culture who have and who continue to shape this land.
