Yuan Yin Bobby: Our Fingers, Like an idle breeze 慵指如风
Presented by The Immigrant Council for Arts Innovation in partnership with Untitled Art Society
We’ve all been leaving
It told me before
Keep us full glad with nothing
Just hold my hands in yours

The Immigrant Council for Arts Innovation is an arts council based in Calgary, Alberta; it was founded in January 2019 with the purpose of connecting newcomer artists with the existing arts community in Calgary. We strive to provide resources and information that would help newcomer artists turn their passion and creativity into thriving careers or businesses. ICAI actively encourages diversity of expression and culture through the creation of a safe and welcoming community hub where newcomer artists feel free to express their distinct cultural identities through their arts. ICAI acknowledges funding from the Calgary Arts Development.
Untitled Art Society is an artist-run centre in Mohkinstsis/Calgary, Alberta, Treaty 7 Territory.
