We wanted to capture the complications that are intertwined with being Eelam Tamil in Toronto. We wanted to showcase the beauty of the combination of our identities in a setting, skateparks, that are normally not associated with Tamilians, nor with women. There is beauty in our multifaceted identities, and there deserves to be documentation of that. The term "days" in the series title "Diaspora Days" is a play on the term "daze" and how our identities may be complicated to digest, but it is our day-to-day.
