Guest Speaker: Toronto Artist Carlina Chen - February 11, 2021

February 11, 2021 is Lunar New Year’s Eve. It is one of the most important dates in the lunar calendar. Tonight families around the world will gather to celebrate the last day of the Year of the Mouse and welcome the arrival of the Ox!
To join in the festivities, we’ll celebrate it with Carlina Chen, an artist and staff member at the OCAD University in Toronto. Born in Taiwan, Carlina came to Canada to study art and decided to stay. Carlina has curated exhibits and her art has been shown in a multitude of exhibits in Canada and Taiwan. Her dual cultural experience has enriched her work
Carlina will talk to us about the significance of the Lunar New Year, and she’ll speak about her personal experiences celebrating it in Taiwan and Canada. She'll highlight some of the current practices and traditions in Asian countries as well as local practices in Toronto’s Chinatown.
