Listening Tables III


Friday, October 11, 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 third Listening Table will be attended by special guest Savita Shah. Savita will be visiting Tiohtiá:ke/Montréal for the first time, and is Rajni’s mother. Savita was born in Nainital, India, and moved to Europe when she was 20 years old. Since then, she has lived in Germany, Switzerland, and now the UK, and experiences the world as a blind person. Savita does not identify as an artist or researcher, but has always been attuned to the injustices of a sexist, racist, and ableist world. She lives a quiet life committed to equity and generosity.

*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.
