They attended Emily Carr University of Art + Design and the University of British Columbia for their undergraduate, and are currently completing an MA in Art History at McGill University.

He completed an MFA in Visual Arts at the University of British Columbia and a BA in Communication Studies at Concordia University. Lindsey Wilson is a multidisciplinary artist. Her work engages with themes of embodiment, queerness, and interconnectivity at the intersection of craft, art, and science. Lindsey completed an MFA at the University of Ottawa and a BFA with a minor in Gender Studies at Queen's University. Raz is a non-binary desi witch dedicated to undoing the harms of profit-driven hierarchies through love, play, and radical sadness.
