October 28: AIR INDIA [REDACTED] Panel Discussion

AIR INDIA [REDACTED]: AT THE CONFLUENCES OF HISTORY, MEMORY AND OUR SILENCED PAST | PANEL DISCUSSION

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. Sharing their work, thoughts, and practice will be Kamal Arora, Dr. Chandrima Chakraborty, Gurpreet Singh, and Dr. Milan Singh. Delving into the larger implications of silenced histories and redacted traumas, our panel sheds light onto the cultural memory of our shared experience in being not just Canadian, but citizens of this fractured world.”

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