Welcome to Rungh Samachar. Samachar, meaning news in several South Asian languages, is Rungh's newest publication, bringing you monthly updates about the works and conversations taking place across Canada by and about people of colour.
Featuring current news, a spotlight on artists and conversations to look out for, and announcements for upcoming events, Rungh Samachar aims to further showcase the work by Indigenous, Black, and People of Colour artists and cultivate discussions around diversity in the Canadian cultural landscape.
We hope you enjoy!

Rungh will soon be publishing a conversation with Peter Morin, Ayumi Goto, and Tarah Hogue which engages with How Do You Carry The Land? , presented at the Vancouver Art Gallery in Summer 2018. The conversation touches upon ideas related to how one “passes” upon the land, introductions, generative spaces, labour and institutional shapeshifting. It is a part of Rungh’s ongoing commitment to exploring new ways of engaging and understanding.
While you are waiting, have a look at Centering Indigenous Art Practices, a Conversation with Chris Creighton-Kelly and France Trepanier.
