Designed by Leanne Riding, a graphic artist, she also paddles on the Gung Haggis Fat Choy dragon boat team. Leanne is also Eurasian, a living example of our Gung Haggis concept of interculturalism. She is descended from Japanese Canadian WW2 internment survivors.

We are really happy that Leanne has designed our 2008 event poster. It features bagpiper Joseph McDonald wearing the Lion Head mask, that has become a Gung Haggis Fat Choy icon when combined with a kilt. A very small picture of Todd Wong can also be seen at the top left corner wearing the Lion head mask and playing accordion.
Celtic band Blackthorn is listed on the poster, along with Vancouver Poet Laureate George McWhirter, and the CBC documentary Generations: The Chan Legacy – which featured past tv clips about Gung Haggis Fat Choy. There will be many Chinese-Canadian artists and performers that will be introduced as “surprises” + many other community performers and personalities.
