About the Artists

Arina Sin is a second-generation Cambodian settler born to refugees on Treaty 6 territory, a traditional meeting grounds, gathering place, and travelling route to the Cree, Saulteaux, Blackfoot, Métis, Dene, and Nakota Sioux. She is an interdisciplinary designer and artist, whose work centres around using communication, art praxis, and visual language to spark conversations about the histories we inherit and the speculative futures we want to manifest. She is a recent graduate from Emily Carr University of Art + Design with hands in graphic design, interation design, photography, and performance. Arina aims to practice designing with rather than for and tries her best to contribute to the social good of the community, arts, and culture.

Mikayla Hong is a self-taught artist and biomedical engineering graduate student at UBC. Vancouver is her home and she loves to capture the aspects that make the city unique; from local businesses to incredible food. Her artwork is mainly created using watercolour paints, but she loves experimenting with different styles and mediums. When her business, artbedo, was conceived, she knew that she wanted part of her platform to give back to the community and benefit social change. A portion of all her profits benefits the Downtown Eastside Women's Shelter as well as other Vancouver-based charities. IG: @artbedo
