Harriet Kim and Mirae Lee are the Co-founders of Choa Magazine (@choamagazine), an online platform for Korean diasporic stories. Harriet is a photographer, writer, community arts organizer, and environmentalist. She co-created a portrait series called Dressed in Layers: A Hanbok Project and is the founder of the Korean Canadian Writers’ Collective. Mirae is a cultural producer, bilingual writer, translator, and illustrator. She has worked with various Tkaronto-based not-for-profit arts organizations until recently when she moved to Asia to explore new possibilities in new settings.
In this episode, we talk about the inspiration behind Choa Magazine, why we need more authentic immigrant stories, and what “grandma taste” means when it comes to Korean food.
