Review: stories untold

Two weeks ago Paralia Newcomer Arts Network hosted the first event of the “Stories Untold” series where we had the opportunity to meet and listen to two newcomer artists in Toronto: Mirna Chacín and Tania Iraheta. Thank you East End Arts and Children’s Peace Theatre for making it happen!

Not only did Mirna and Tania do a fantastic job talking about their work, but they also presented some of the challenges they faced in order to establish as an artist in Canada. See below the tweets we live-tweeted during the event. 

Make sure you don’t miss next one!
