Asia-Art-Activism Zoom Luck
Hosted by me and Annie Jael Kwan, the workshop talked about how to write/ create within (or in between) major and minor historical events. The workshop explored the possibility of our response as well as the creativity that was brought by those impactful protests and demonstrations in Asia.
Researcher in Residence
During the residency, I researched the livelihood, everyday life and destiny of ethnic-Chinese seafarers in Victorian times Limehouse Chinatown London, which came together in the late 19th century and was heavily bombed during WWII. The creative writing piece revitalises their lives and acknowledges their existence with a decolonial perspective.
