Listening Tables I


Friday, August 30, 2019 - 17:00 to 20:00

Hosted by Acts of Listening Lab postdoctoral fellow Rajni Shah, ‘Listening Tables’ is a series of four events exploring the relationships between listening, gathering, and feminisms. Rather than inviting guest speakers, Rajni has invited a guest listener to be present at each event, who will bring their own way of listening, shaped by their unique lived experiences, to the table. These events will be carefully held, and Rajni especially welcomes people who feel marginalised or silenced by more mainstream structures of dialogue and interaction.

Our first Listening Table will be attended by special guest Ellen O’Brien. Ellen is a poet and researcher who is working with Rajni in 2019 to facilitate the Feminist Killjoys Reading Group in Western Sydney. Their artistic practice is centred around confronting, reckoning with, and understanding contradicting parts of identities, and approaching those contradictions with curiosity, generosity, and warmth. Ellen is a descendant of the Guringai people from the Broken Bay area of New South Wales, Australia, and will be in residence at the Acts of Listening Lab during the final week of August.

*Strictly limited capacity with compulsory sign-up (max 25) - guests will receive further information and a reminder a week before the event.

Please contact Rajni (rajni.shah@concordia.ca) if you have any questions about access.
