Objets d' Arc, was also an evening for community empowerment, especially for young, emerging femme-identifying artists. Od'A featured femme-identifying artists Miki Aurora, ACE duo, Kyla James, Simone Sylvan, Liz Kim, Elli Zogia, Nina Chwelos, Samia Sun, and Zhamak Fullad, with DJ Rachel Fay spinning tunes throughout the night. The full album of photos from the show are uploaded onto my official Facebook page here, for your viewing pleasure. Video footage of the performances will be uploaded onto my Youtube channel soon.

Recently, I released my latest track "Ocean Girl" as a healing song for femmes in our community, my femme-identifying friends, and myself. The song uses the ocean as a way to overcome our past abuse, and signify our continuous rebirth. I identify with the powerful, vast force of nature, and I want you to as well. We are stronger than a hurricane. We are an ocean.
I'm looking forward to creating the visual concept for the "Ocean Girl" music video, and be ready to shoot by April 2017. If you are a videographer wanting to collab for this project, please do email me.
Last but not least, I want to thank Vancouver Art and Leisure (a.k.a. Gallery 1965) for giving me this space. This venue has been like a second home to me, ever since I started working door in January. Thank you for providing emerging artists with opportunities and support, like the way you provided for me and my artists.
