Calling emerging Japanese Canadian
musicians in British Columbia!
Deadline April 1
Calling emerging Japanese Canadian musicians in British Columbia!
Powell Street Festival Society, in partnership with Vancouver Inter-cultural Orchestra, is offering a unique opportunity to an emerging BC-based Japanese Canadian musician to come to Vancouver to participate in this year’s Global Soundscape Festival: Chrysanthemums and Maple Leaves at Waterfront Theatre June 5-9th, 2019.
Festival pass, transportation, and accommodation expenses will be covered by Powell Street Festival Society.
This opportunity is open to emerging musicians who identify as Japanese Canadian and reside in British Columbia. Artists may be singers, composers, song writers, and practice any genre of music.
Interested applicants are to send an expression of interest, artist statement, CV, and sample work (.mp3 or online link) to firstname.lastname@example.org before April 1, 2019.
The Tashme Project is a verbatim or documentary-style play that delves deeply into the life experience of the nisei, with a focus on internment. Drawn from the testimonies of 20 nisei who were children at the time of internment; their stories of adventure and play are presented in sharp relief alongside the more common internment narratives of hardship and injustice. Both Miwa and Manning lovingly embody the voices of their elders as they seek a deeper connection with them and their performance is meant to encourage younger generation Japanese Canadians to speak to their own elder family members.
Available Shows are: Tues @ 7pm | Wed – Fri @ 8pm | Sat @ 3pm & 8pm | Sun @ 3pm | Wed @ 1pm Pay What You Can (April 10th ONLY)
This event takes place on the unceded territories of the Coast Salish peoples, including the xwməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaʔ (Tsleil-Waututh) nations.
As organizers of this gathering, our mission is to create a space for individuals who identify as having Japanese ancestry to connect, socialize, and have fun. We welcome people of varying ages, backgrounds, identities, abilities, and locations.
