미래; みらい; mirae lee defines herself as an emerging cultural producer and an interdisciplinary artist currently based in Tkarón:to/Toronto. She is the Community Director at Project 40 Collective and works with various not-for-profit arts organizations to support and create spaces for underrepresented voices.

Her creative practice is grounded in the poetics of loss and incomprehensibility, and her relationship with the land she resides and those she shares it with. She prefers to communicate through a mixed media of bilingual prose and illustrations, and is currently creating her first bilingual zine series.

Her research interests are: use of performing arts by youth of underrepresented communities; the phenomena of "multiculturalism" and "feminism" through and within Korean mass media; lived experiences of Korean diasporic women in Canada.

Her hobbies include spending unnecessary amount of time exploring alternative, independent, local artists in the Korean music scene, and writing about them here.
