Art and Politics — with Dalannah Gail Bowen
Play • 29 min
Dalannah Gail Bowen reflects on a lifetime of making music and convening community in the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver. A passionate singer, community arts administrator, and activist, Dalannah shares her philosophy of walking compassionately through the world and how she aims to make space for — and remove barriers to — finding connection through art making. She and Am Johal discuss her work in community arts, her career as a musician, and how she interprets our political moment during the COVID-19 pandemic as a widespread awakening to social inequities. Dalannah gifts us with a song to close the episode.
