Since 2016, The Future is You and Me has been providing young women of colour with support, mentorship, and networking opportunities, giving them the tools to take leadership positions in creative and arts organizations. Headed by Kristin Cheung and Megan Lau, the program provides a space to explore the arts “through the lenses of gender and race,” building a “like-minded community of women” in the process (“Home”). Chung and Lau gave us the low-down on the project on SADCast last year, an episode you can check out here.
