Akash Bansal is a writer, filmmaker, DJ and programmer based in Toronto. Their expanded poetry practice includes video, sound, performance, photography, as well as more traditional forms of text-based poetics. Their recent work has examined borders— both real and imagined, between people and places, and especially those within ourselves. Over the past 8 years they have hosted radio residencies on the Lot Radio, n10as, TRP and CHRY. They have co-organized Pillow Talk, an experimental dance party since 2016.
