김새로미 also known as Romi Kim in English or Skim in drag, is a queer, genderfluid,second generation Korean.They identify themselves through these words in recognizing they are verbs rather than nouns or adjectives- constantly in action, and in flux. Kim explores personal histories within colonial spaces. They are interested in the power of the story and privileges within language. They work within an interdisciplinary approach within video, performance, and installation. Kim is an uninvited settler living and working on unceded xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and Sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations. They are currently studying at the University of British Columbia as an MFA candidate.

Youth Drag Series

February 2020 I received a Creative Sparks grant from the city of Vancouver in order to hold a Youth Drag workshop. Queer youth ages 11 and up came to learn about the art of drag from Skim and guest facilitators Rose Butch, Satanix, and Dust.  

Racialization, Stereotypes and Allyship workshop

August 2019 I had an artist residency at the Caetani centre in Vernon. During this time I had the opportunity to work with members of the community -  Okanagan Elder Mollie Bono, artist Mariel Belanger, Brian Sakakibara and Elmaz Wilder to create and help facilitate this workshop.
