- Multidisciplinary Artist
Hannia Cheng is a multidisciplinary artist, space maker, and host/MC born and raised in Tkaronto/Toronto. At the intersection of relationships and reciprocity, their practice focuses on art as the common ground in which we build capacity to make stuff up and make shit happen. Hannia is curious about ways of resilience and the speculative-futures that exist in the greater unknown of our daily lives.
Hannia co-founded Tea Base in 2019, a DIY community arts space and collective based out of Chinatown Centre. They currently organize with Friends of Chinatown Toronto, a grassroots group working to build community power and resist displacement in Chinatown. They are the 2020 recipient of the Pam Mcconnell Award. They’ve collaborated with Toronto Pride, Toronto Biennial, Nuit Blanche Scarborough, Toronto Fringe Festival, Manifesto Festival, Bricks & Glitter Festival, and more.
