Mandeep Wirk – Surrey Muse

Mandeep Wirk is a writer and social activist who also works as a visual artist, photographer and educator. Her writings have appeared in various publications in Lowermainland including the new anthology ‘Sustenance: Writers from BC and Beyond on the Subject of Food‘. The founder of Facebook Page: Art and Culture in Surrey, Mandeep feels that it is important for her to voice her thoughts, ideas, and feelings to challenge social issues such as racism to help foster human rights for everyone including women. She says: ‘By sharing our views with each other, hopefully we can arrive at some solutions to make this a better world for everyone to thrive in.‘ Mandeep was born in Kenya and as a child she immigrated with her family to England. Then in 1972, the year that multiculturalism became official policy in Canada and the doors of immigration opened up to people of color, she immigrated again with her family settling in British Columbia. At this time, Mandeep is working on a book of non-fiction which is ‘a memoir of sorts’, and she is busy creating a set of new paintings.
