ALEXANDRA CHEN is driven to work towards moving Vancouver's electronic scene towards the forefront of sound while creating safer spaces where marginalized folks can lose themselves in music, where the dance floor is a space of freedom, self-expression, and where dividing lines are blurred. Whether booking international headliners or selecting local acts, she aims to amplify the voices of people underrepresented in the music industry. She is currently an active member of New Forms Media Society’s board.
