Quarantine Qapsule (QQ) is a digital archive of the Asian Canadian experience during the COVID-19 pandemic brought to you by Tea Base in partnership with Myseum of Toronto.
Welcome to the archives! Tea Base invites you to delve deep and discover all the wonderous creations from some of our lovely community members across Ontario. All 7 of these collections represent such a varied mixture, little glimpses into the thoughts, lives, creations, and fantasies of everyday Asian Canadians. Us at Tea Base have had so much fun these past few months working on Quarantine Qapsule with Nightingale Nguyen and Myseum, we were fascinated by the diversity of the submissions and the story that organically grows out of bringing all these voices together. This is why we chose to accept all submissions, as long as they corresponded with the guidelines, rather than jurying a curated exhibition. This is most importantly an exercise in self- narrated documentation, in sharing and preserving our own stories, our own voices, and our own lived experiences. This is a Community Archive!
