Event Details

Tea Base is a curious community arts space tucked away in Tkaronto/Toronto's Chinatown Centre Mall. The community aims to make accessible space for intergenerational activists and artists who support social justice movements in and around Chinatown. Tea Base is a space that develops solidarity across marginalized groups through relationships, joy and collaboration.

From December 2020 until May 2021, the collective Tea Base will be in residence with the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) Toronto. Tea Base is creating opportunities for MOCA's guests and our community more broadly to engage with art digitally. During our virtual residency, we will offer virtual workshops, a sound installation, as well as a variety of performances. Members taking a lead in MOCA’s programming include Christie Carrière, Hannia Cheng, and Florence Yee.

Lunar New Year Colouring Pages:

In the Chinese zo-diac, 2021 is the Year of the Ox! In honour of the Lu-nar New Year, enjoy these colouring pages designed by artist Christie Carrière, Co-Creative Director of Tea Base. Tea Base has been in residency with MOCA for the past few months, presenting virtual mahjong demonstrations and researching oral histories to cre-ate a living archive of grassroots endeavours by queer and BIPOC collectives in the neighbourhood. The colouring pages and more information are available here: https://moca.ca/lunar-new-year-colouring-pages-by-christie-carriere/
