"The 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. The evening will include readings of poetry by Renee Saklikar.
The second part of the evening will be a discussion of the artistic process related to the development of air india [redacted], an artistic collaboration between Canadian and Irish artists, which will premiere at SFU November 6th. Panelists include Owen Underhill, Music Director, Turning Point Ensemble; Jürgen Simpson, scholar and composer; and Renée Saklikar, poet. Hosted/moderated by Michael Boucher, Director of SFU Woodwards Cultural Programs."
