Joyce is the volunteer founder, president and artistic producer of Vancouver Asian Canadian Theater, She has created a unique theatre environment that allows Asian Canadian audiences to identify more closely with stories that connect with their own backgrounds. At the same time, mainstream audiences have access through her theatre to authentic Asian Canadian experiences. Joyce has launched a thriving company of Asian Canadian actors through more than 35 productions in ten years. The impact of her work is profound and cannot be understated; it nurtures us all to be connected and tolerant as a community of neighbours. She leads by example every day.
