air india redacted panel discussion

At the intersections of history, memory, and trauma are confluences; spaces that offer opportunities for growth and understanding to occur. Engaging in this process does not diminish the individual traumas and injustices of particular events. Rather, our panel discussion, moderated by Naveen Girn, introduces storytelling as a tool through which the shared memorialization and remembrance of past events can gain a deeper resonance.

When: Wed, October 28, 2015. 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM
Where: Djavad Mowafaghian Cinema, Goldcorp Centre for the Arts, 149 W. Hastings St.
