Tea Base is a grassroots collective of queer East and South-East Asian artists, organizers, and cultural facilitators. Sharing the name of the space in Tkaronto/Toronto’s Chinatown Centre Mall where they gather, Tea Base promotes community engagement by hosting events, cultural programming, exhibitions, and workshops related to issues of displacement and healing for the East and South-East Asian diasporas.
DIY Skate TO is a pop-up skate park that takes over the street and challenges us to reimagine our relationship to the land. It was created out of a lack of un-commodified space in the city, a need for community programming in the skate community, and a shortage of serviceable parks for skaters to gather. It is a place to enjoy the vibes, eat a shared meal and throw down a sick sesh.
