미래; Mirae Lee is a Toronto-based Korean.Canadian who currently defines herself as a community arts organizer and an aspiring anthropologist. Her creative practice is strongly rooted in her ongoing negotiation of her hyphenated identity, and her positionality in the land she resides and those she shares it with. She is passionate about supporting emerging artists, and creating spaces for under-recognized voices in the local arts scene.
Her main mode of creative expression is rendered through illustrations, zines, digital curation and bilingual prose. She is currently exploring lived experiences of Korean diasporic community in Canada through archival research while drawing on contemporary discourse; animation of the Korean language; and "authenticity" of Korean hip hop.
She spends unnecessary amount of time watching mv's, looking at lyrics, and reading music reviews of Korean songs - hence, this blog she started with her friend Jasmine.
Mirae is the Community Engagement Director at Project 40 Collective. She's currently finishing up her degree in Sociocultural Anthropology and Art History, with a minor in Writing & Rhetoric at the University of Toronto.
