Description

Sharon Fernandez begins by discussing her various works within the people of colour community prior to the Dash Pardesh festival, with a specific goal to push women of colour’s involvement in the writing and in the community. She then discusses the relation of Khush to Salaam Toronto (eventually to be named Desh Pardesh). Fernandez also touches on politics within Toronto and how they were represented within the festival over the years. She concludes by conceptualizing how change happens and how it may manifest in the modern day.
