BIPOC Artist Hub

Vanier College Productions (VCP) is excited to launch the first-ever BIPOC Artist HUB at York University. Open to all BIPOC artists (theatre, dance, music, visual art, film, design, media, etc.) at York, the group will meet every Tuesday from 5:30-6:15 pm virtually for the Fall Term (Winter Term TBA). While creating a safe space, the HUB will include group discussions, workshops, guest BIPOC artists, and maybe even a Talent Show at the end of the year.

The group will be led by VCP alumni Alex Jyn-Li Cairns (she/her), a Durham Region based actor and voice over artist who has been working in the Toronto film and television industry since 2017. She has been featured in national commercials for brands such as McDonalds and Rogers and has worked behind the scenes as a PA on feature length and short films.

Alex is half Chinese and is proud to represent the mixed race voice in the industry and beyond. She is very passionate about listening to and helping to amplify BIPOC stories. She holds a BFA in Theatre (Acting Conservatory) from York University and is currently studying Broadcasting and Indigenous studies at Durham College.
