Priya 'Pree' Rehal (they/them pronouns)
I graduated from my Master's in Tkaronto (aka Toronto) in 2016 and taught in Tiohtiá:ke (aka Montreal for a few years). I'm currently based in Toronto, but have presented research at conferences across Canada and in the States. I work from a disability justice, trauma-informed, anti-racist, anti-oppressive framework that is survivor-focused.
My freelance repertoire includes:
Pree's bio for external use
(feel free to adapt this for upcoming events)
Pree was raised in Tiohtiá:ke/Montreal and went to school in Tkaronto/Toronto. They are a child of immigrant settlers from Punjab. They graduated from a joint Master's program at York and Ryerson Universities in 2016 and continued facilitating since!
As an artist educator, Pree's work centres the experiences of individuals who are BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Colour). Their creative research interests include cosplaying, storytelling, crafting, culture, social justice issues and how BIPOC trans and queer folx navigate things like: their diaspora, fandoms they belong too, and non-monogamy.
Pree has most recently co-founded the Non-Binary Colour Collective, which organized the first ever "2SQTBIPOC Fair" !
