We partnered with Immigrant Lessons a Vancouver based dance company and Sleepless mindz streetwear company to put together a shoot with the original members of the company.
IMMIGRANT LESSONS :
is a dance/art collective created to promote cultural pluralism through: dance, music, fashion, and visual design. It is the soul child of the collaborative efforts of two professional artists, Kevin Fraser and Alyssa Amarshi. These two dance professionals have decided to merge their 13 years of combined experience to tackle issues that have been prominent both in their profes...sional as well as their personal lives. Individually, their work has explored issues of: sexual orientation and gender identity, feminism, racial discrimination, cultural erasure, intersectionality, as well as mental illness. Immigrant Lessons is a combined front to aid in the creation of more opportunities in: dance, stage performance, film, urban performance, concert dance, as well as community development for POC and other marginalized communities.
