Lara Lewis will create a zine examining her communities and the intersections between them - queer folk, trans folk, the urban Mi'kmaq community, and independent theatre artists. Lara plans to record interviews with young Mi'kmaq, trans, and queer peers. The interviews will then be transcribed and formed into a loose narrative that will be incorporated with found images into a series of zines and possibly short plays.
Lara Lewis is a 22 year old Mi'kmaq queer person raised off-reserve and living in Halifax. She is a graduate of theatre studies at Dalhousie University, and is taking her first steps to becoming a professional theatre artist, using her voice to tell stories of people whose are not usually told.
