Water yourself too


Azka is a South-Asian interdisciplinary artist and first-generation immigrant. Their practice explores concepts of healing, identity and diaspora through evocative mediums such as film and spoken word. They have been published twice with the Poetry institute of Canada and have represented Manitoba at the Canadian Individual Poetry Slam. Azka is a strong believer in the importance of practicing vulnerability and continuous compassion and they hope that their work inspires others to form deeper connections with themselves and those around them
