Highlights from the Conference
In her moving presentation, Casey Mecija reflects upon what it means to be a queer artist, and how multiculturalism has marked and disciplined her body as a performer as the lead singer for Ohbijou. By the end of her presentation, Mecija performs her original song "Balikbayan", which manages to turn the OCAD University Auditorium into an intimate space riven with vulnerability, presence, and affinity. Mecija's presentation is part of Panel 1 on "Performing Sexuality, Collectivity, and Indigeneity". More videos from the conference to come.
