Kama La Mackerel

[traduction française non disponible]

Kama La Mackerel is a tio’tia:ke/Montréal-based performer, writer, poet, story-teller, curator and multi-disciplinary artist whose work explores aesthetic practices as forms of resilience, resistance and healing for marginalized communities. Using photography, film, textiles, prints, spoken word and digital arts, Kama’s work is both deeply personal and political, articulating an anti-colonial praxis through cultural production.

Kama is the co-founder of Qouleur, an annual arts festival that brings together queer and trans artists of colour; the founder and hostess of GENDER B(L)ENDER, Montréal’s only queer open stage that takes place every last Friday of the month; and she curates the annual anti-Valentine’s day cabaret, “Self-Love Cabaret: l’amour se conjugue à la première personne.” In the past, she has also curated SPEAK B(L)ACK, résistance//résidence, and along with Kai Cheng Thom, co-curated Home Invasion: Queers Shaking the Foundations of All White Houses in Halifax, NS.
