Brown Canada Project Seeks Submissions
Brown Canada is a community-led project documenting and creating South Asian histories in Canada. Our collective entry point is through the Komagata Maru incident of 1914.
This project seeks to create a participatory and comprehensive website, a play on the Komagata Maru, creative and digital storytelling workshops, DVD and resource booklets, and intergenerational and cross-cultural dialogue.
We call all writers, researchers, artists, activists, scholars, educators, community organizers, students, youth, and interested and excited individuals to be a part of this project, and to learn, tell and create South Asian history on our own terms.
Join us in documenting the history of South Asian immigration to Canada by submitting a post to the Brown Canada website. Submissions can include scanned photographs, brief essays, poetry, video, art-work and other formats.
We are looking for submissions from people of various South Asian identities including but not limited to people identifying as Bangladeshi, Indo-Caribbean, Indian, Muslim, Pakistani, Punjabi, Sikh, Tamil,Mixed-Race, LGBTQ, Women, disAbled, Workers, Artists, Cultural workers and Healthcare providers.
Topics on the submission are diverse ranging from issues such as isolation, discrimination, acculturation, racism, creating ‘community, sexism, homophobia, resistance etc. Please include a brief bio and your contact information with your submission.
We are accepting submissions on an ongoing basis and the FIRST round of submissions is due by Monday, April 16th 2012. We will be posting submissions onto the Brown Canada website as they are received.
