Description

Ian Iqbal Rashid is a poet and writer, and one of the co-founders of Desh Pardesh. In this interview he discusses the conception of Desh, its original visions and its its manifestation into an internationally recognized event. Rashid was not involved extensively in programming or planning, but was instrumental to bringing together the necessary team to do so. Rashid also discusses race politics, race shame, and the political climate of Toronto from the late 1980s to late 1990s. He concludes with how Desh Pardesh shaped him as a South Asian artist and gay man.
