謝兆龍 Shawn Tse
I am an amiskwacîwâskahikan/Edmonton based artist, filmmaker and educator passionate about social change in arts and media. As a second generation Chinese Canadian, I am concerned about the lack of cultural diversity in Canadian arts and heritage industries but have privileges to be actively engaged to support and work with my local ethnocultural community. My love of community and storytelling has helped me develop the intergenerational cooking show Seconds, Please!, lead a community arts project Figure 一, 二, 三, 六, 八 using Chinese ink paintings & film to highlight the historical and cultural impacts of Edmonton's ever-changing Chinatown, and make more inclusive futures in Chinatown with the Aiya! Collective.
