HOT DYKE PARTY (Director/Co-creator) - Library Performance Coll.

Arthi is sharing her favourite cocktail recipe with you (drink responsibly): shake 2oz oaken gin with 1oz crème de cassis, strain over ice. Top with tonic water and 2-3 dashes cardamom bitters.

Arthi acknowledges her work, life, and play all occur on the unceded Indigenous land belonging to the Musqueam, Skxwú7mesh, and Tsleil-Waututh peoples.
