KEYNOTE AND PANEL DISCUSSION as part of the ASIAN CANADIANS IN VISUAL CULTURE CONFERENCE
EV-1.615, Concordia University
This panel seeks to examine cross-cultural anti-oppression alliances and practices between African- and Asian Canadians and Indigenous peoples in light of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s 94 Calls to Action in its 2015 report.
Organized and co-presented by EAHR & IARG, this is a special two-part event—a keynote entitled “Shame : Notes from An Exoduster’s Archive” by Black Canadian artist Deanna Bowen, recipient of the prestigious Guggenheim Fellowship in 2016. This will be followed by a panel, with short presentations by social worker Gordon Pon and Metis artist Dylan Miner, ending with a group discussion with the three presenters and audience members.
