Snack Tour with Snack Witch

June 20th, 1PM - 4PM
The New Gallery
208 Centre St S

On June 20th at 1PM Snack Witch Joni Cheung will be conducting a snack tour of Calgary's Chinatown! We will meet at The New Gallery's main space at 1PM and distribute snack maps to all of our guests! The first 16 guests to sign up will be given a $20.00 snack budget! After separating and buying our snacks we will meet back up with the group to eat and show off all of our wonderful snacks!

If you sign up after the first 16 guests, you are still welcome to participate, you just won't receive the $20.00 snack budget and will have to pay for your own snacks.

🔮 Snack Witch Joni Cheung 🍡 is a grateful, uninvited guest born—and knows she wants to die—on the unceded territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm, Skwxwú7mesh, Stó:lō, and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh peoples. They are a Certified Sculpture Witch with an MFA from Concordia University (2023). She holds a BFA with Distinction in Visual Art (2018) from the School for the Contemporary Arts at Simon Fraser University. As a wicked #magicalgirl ✨ who eats art and makes snacks, she has exhibited and curated shows, off- and online, across Turtle Island. Currently, they are based on the stolen lands of the Kanien’kehá:ka peoples. Aside from art-making, Joni likes wandering down grocery store aisles and drinking bubble tea.


This event is a part of programming for Snack Witch Joni Cheung's exhibition; bring back as souvenirs - on exhibit at The New Gallery until June 29th, 2024.

Snack Witch Joni Cheung and The New Gallery gratefully acknowledge the support of the British Columbia Arts Council.
