im:print 2024
October 3–12, 2024

A special presentation with the Inter-Cultural Association of Greater Victoria featuring a creative team of diverse artists and facilitators.

im:print 2024 is a diverse performance that skillfully weaves together the personal stories of Indigenous, settler, immigrant and refugee artists. Using spoken word, dance and song, the production delves into the complex web of our connections to place, people and belonging. It boldly challenges prevailing beliefs and sheds light on the real-life impacts of equity, diversity, inclusion, and identity politics.

This project, which spans across cultures and generations, is a community-based effort designed to be a vital creative outlet. These stories centre around themes like place and displacement, belonging and longing, and connection and disconnection, showcasing the diverse voices within our community.

“Art can be a powerful way of healing, raising awareness, and having conversations around difficult subjects.” —ICA

About ICA of Greater Victoria

For 50 years, the Inter-Cultural Association’s purpose has been to support the full integration of newcomer immigrants and refugees into the social, economic and civic life of the Capital Region of British Columbia.

Newcomers make our communities stronger economically, culturally and socially. To ensure their success, the Inter-Cultural Association of Greater Victoria (ICA) plays a critical role in helping immigrants get a positive start on their new lives in Canada by providing the services and resources they need to thrive, helping more than 70,000 individuals and families as they transition to a new life in Canada.

Beginning in the 1970s as a response to racism in our community, the ICA continues to offer wide-ranging services, including anti-racism programming, youth engagement, mentorship and language instruction, as well as employment, education, healthcare and housing, and transportation assistance. The ICA’s arts program helps nurture minds and souls, creating cross-cultural learning.
