a family friendly evening of food, music and performances celebrating migrant workers struggles through the arts.
This MayWorks will feature a performance by the IWC Artist Bloc, an ongoing community activist art project, co-created by and for immigrant artists and workers. Since 2013, the IWC Artist Bloc has incorporated new media, music, storytelling, visual arts and participatory theater approaches into their community arts activist work. A roving renegade theater squad, they bring stories of struggle to picnics, protests and public space.
The evening will also feature performances from Pinay, the South Asian Women’s Centre, Amir Amiri, and DJ Grenadier. The IWC will also present a photo exhibition by Luigi Pasto, documenting the living and working conditions of immigrant workers involved in the Centre”s campaigns.
