About SchemaMag | www.schemamag.ca
SchemaMag is about being more than ethnic. Like you, we’re “Cultural Navigators”we’re constantly moving through a complex and inspiring web of cultures. Like you, Schema is a blend of things: a little bit of identity stuff, what’s happening to you right now, and why you’re important in today’s cutting edge and mainstream. Like you, Schema is a signpost, a hub, and a connecting point to all your possible directions as a cultural innovator.
Being a Cultural Navigator – Canada is a messy, invigorating polyglot of mongrels, pure-breeds and race-mixers. But we are also more than that. More than Bruce Lee. More than Bob Marley. More than Bollywood. You belong to no one tribe. You’re naan, adobo and bubble tea. You are comfortable in your skin and comfortable with other skins marching to the beats of their own drums. Or tablas. Or djembes. Constantly moving, your life is about bursting through ceilings and taking diversity with you.
