THE MIN SOOK LEE LABOUR ARTS AWARDS:
The Min Sook Lee Labour Arts Awards are named after Min Sook Lee, an activist-artist whose own contributions moved Mayworks Festival toward its current artistic vision: to actively seek representation of equity groups as audiences and artists. Lee also helped Mayworks focus on programming that engages new, non-arts audiences, and that challenges Euro-centric notions of art.
