In January 2021, we began hosting our fourth workshop series for LGBTQ+ refugees, in partnership with the Metropolitan Community Church of Toronto. This 5-week workshop series explores and considers such questions as, where am I home? where am I homeless? who tells me where my home is and whether or not I can find it?
This series, led by award-winning media artist Jorge Lozano, invites participants from the LGBTQ+ refugee community to make short personal videos. These videos draw on such topics as, the body, personal objects, and food. Videos will be showcased on our site.
Here is a video about Jorge, a Colombian Canadian media artist who recently won a Governer General’s Award in Visual and Media Arts.
