Sneak a peek into what I’ve been working on for the past few months/years. Tonight at Shanghai. This interactive installation is called “illuminating our ancestors” it is an old discarded Chinese chandelier I repurposed. Fire, incense and smoke are often used to honour our ancestors in ceremony. In this piece, I hope to achieve a similar sense of ceremony using the chandelier light, sourced images of my family and technology to honour our ancestors. #myartprocess#artottawa#chinatownottawa#donkwanart#canadianart#illuminatingart @ Shanghai Restaurant

The Gala is a fabulous event featuring a reception and an award ceremony. At the award ceremony, we will give Awards to leaders from across Canada who have gone above and beyond in the fight against bullying and discrimination.
This year’s event is proud to pay tribute to divers queer & trans folks featuring performances from a special curated group of local artists and performers.
The gala is a FREE EVENT. Our goal with the Gala is not to raise money, but to build community and celebrate the success of CCGSD over the past year. There will be hors d’oeuvres provided free of charge, and beverages will be available through a cash bar. We will also have a raffle and silent auction to help raise funds for the gala. Our VIPink guests will be provided free beverages throughout the night, priority seating during the award ceremony, and will have their name added to the VIPink exclusive raffle.
The CCGSD is always focused on our work in schools. As such, we are proud to announce that this event is a zero-budget event, with any profits made funneled directly into our programming across Canada.
We acknowledge that this event is being held on the traditional territories of the Algonquin peoples.

The first Comic Jam of SPRING is coming up at the end of the month! Theme: Doodles
Sometimes doodles can inspire a cool story, character or situation. Even geometric phone doodles can be fun launching creative thoughts. Bring a doodle (even a scribble on a page) to inspire a comic panel or story. Or doodle at the event. We’ll see what cool things pop up from the subconscious doodle-brain n_n
