As a multipotentialite with a wide range of skills, she enjoys working across multiple mediums to create a blend of visual and textual art. Be it collage, graphic design, or poetry, Joy’s endless love and care for community is a recurring theme in her work.

Jasper Berehulke (he/him), is an artist from Kelowna, BC,  with Syilx Okanagan and Ukrainian heritage. He now lives and practices in “Vancouver” since graduating with a BFA from UBC in 2024. He focuses on oil painting after previously working in the 2D animation industry. Through his art, Jasper shares his reflections on society, inviting viewers to explore and connect with his perspective as a two-spirit and neurodivergent person.

He exhibits his work across the Lower Mainland, and they delve into personal feelings, cultural teachings, and current events, aiming to provoke thought and challenge views. He continually strives to push the boundaries of his creativity, offering fresh insights and experiences to all who encounter his work. Instagram: @shrimp.jpegs | Website:

Sarah Wong is an emerging writer, choreographer, and interdisciplinary artist based in Vancouver, Canada on the unceded territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations. Her work emerges from lived experiences as a queer and disabled 2nd generation Chinese-Canadian, focusing on archival processes and accessing embodied intergenerational knowledge to trace relationships between identity and lineage.

Her practice makes space for the multiple, creating work that spans performance, site-specific installation, textiles, poetry, film, and zines. She is devoted to cultivating practices of care, creating and facilitating spaces for bodies to rest.
