hi. i’m lee.
i’m developing a life/art practice that includes interdisciplinary art-making, writing, performing, community organizing and facilitating arts-based workshops towards social/political/healing change. much of my work explores intersectional identities and social justice – seeking to share un(der)represented stories of survival.
i am a queer, trans, Armenian-Liverpudlian mixie with familial ties to Lebanon, Syria, what is current-day Turkey, and Liverpool, England. Born in Scarborough, Ontario and having moved many times, i currently live and work in Vancouver, unceded Coast Salish territories. all these elements of me are vital to the work I feel called to make and the communities I work within.
i have exhibited my artwork, published writings, and performed both nationally and internationally. some of my current love projects include: Kalik, ShapeShift Arts, Dear Armen, and The Hye-Phen Magazine.
