Keshia Palm

Resident Dramaturg

Keshia Palm (she/they) is a Filipinx-German artist from Treaty 6 Territory who seeks to expose, challenge and dismantle systems of oppression by creating thoughtful and inclusive art/spaces — as Producer, Director, Dramaturge, Playwright, and Actor. Keshia has developed and performed new works with IBPOC, queer, women, and trans artists with companies across Canada. Since 2016, they’ve found community where there are trees standing in the water creating art, bringing artists together, and supporting emerging artists through ArtistProducerResource.com, and artistic producing the Paprika Festival. During the pandemic, she has focused on creating micro-art-experiences by sharing personal stories, going outside, reflecting on what gifts the future will bring, and what tools we have to ignite transformative change.
