Jen Sungshine speaks for a living, but lives for breathing life into unspoken situations in unusual places. As a queer Taiwanese artist-activist based in Vancouver, BC, she is guided by an ethos of care that is rooted in the ancestral lands of the Coast Salish people. A facilitator by trade, she works with creative technology and social justice media through: Love Intersections, Our City of Colours, Out in Schools and the Social Justice Institute at the University of British Columbia. Jen's artistic practice involves learning through unlearning; and instead of calling you out, she wants to call you in, to make artful social change with her. In the audience, she looks for art in your interruption.
