My name is Sean Preston, and I am the Site Project Manager at Bard on the Beach, which is to say that I’m in charge of building the festival site that our patrons know and love. I have been working in the arts for over two decades, and I am thrilled to be participating in this project that celebrates Asians in our community. Although I may not look half-Chinese, those roots run back five generations on my mother’s side: to my great-great-grandfather who came from China to Canada to help build the railways. In my family, we often use stories to help maintain connections to each other, our history, and our traditions—all the things that make up our heritage. So, I am grateful to be able to contribute in my way to an organization and an industry that celebrates culture and the power of story, and I am grateful to Boca del Lupo for the opportunity to share a bit of my story with you.
