About the Instructor

Petrina Ng (she/her) is an artist based in Toronto. Her work is informed by her position as a racialized settler. Petrina’s collaborative work as Gendai (with curator Marsya Maharani) responds to racialized labour conditions of arts work. Their research and practice of collective values experiments with alternative economies and allyship to work towards a more equitable sector. She is also co-founder of Durable Good (with designer Rachel Wallace), a small publishing studio, and Waard Ward, a collective that utilizes floristry and gardening as a means to embody decolonial research and newcomer community building.
