Deann Louise C. Nardo is a poet, interwoven artist and cultural worker living and napping in Tiohtiá:ke/Montréal. They work as mycelium: connecting, decomposing, metabolizing, and regenerating nutrients for/with their community. A voracious craft pursuer and maker, they work with wood, paper, food and whatever else you can throw at them. Their practice thrives on the thin line where questions live; where memory, healing, and community are embodied and empowered through interdisciplinary art forms.

They have worked with organizations such as QPIRG Concordia, Migrante Quebec, Pulso ng Bayan, and International Women’s Alliance. They are currently part of Ka Collective, an art collective under Centre Kapwa: an organization rooted in decolonization, serving and supporting the mental health and well-being of Montreal Filipinx youth and their families.
