The MIXED Art Conference is a multidisciplinary biennial art conference, aiming to co-create an inclusive dialogue about racialized mixed identities and lived realities through an intersectional lens. Using art and critical dialogue as vehicles for social change — through performance and visual art, panel presentations and conversation-style breakout sessions — MIXED explores the ways mixed-raced folks negotiate identity, power dynamics and community-building in their everyday lives.
