Kamee was born in Scarborough, Ontario to an Armenian family, by way of Beirut, Lebanon; and arrives in the world today as a queer woman and a multidisciplinary producer / artist / facilitator / storyteller. She has a BFA/BA in film and political science from Concordia University (Montreal, Quebec) and an MA in expressive art therapy from the European Graduate School (Saas Fee, Switzerland) — with a special focus on the integration of digital media. The bedrock of Kamee’s arts training is in classical ballet, theatre, and visual art. In collaboration with fellow artists and allies (lee williams boudakian, Katie Partlow, The Hye-Phen Mag), she continues to develop a body of work inclusive of film, performance, writing, digital art and design (Dear Armen, Alchemy of Waste, Saboteur Productions). Kamee is currently pursuing an MA/PhD in community, liberation and ecopsychologies at Pacifica Graduate Institute (Carpinteria, California) and is based in Portland, Oregon.
My intention is to disrupt the status quo; to create work that digs into and unsilences a millefeuille of lost or untold stories, both ancestral and contemporary; and to dialogue with the unmapped, oppressed, and stagnant inside self and community.
