You are invited to a talk with semi-private reception to follow!
CECILY NICHOLSON AND JULIANE OKOT BITEK WITH LILLIAN ALLEN:FORGETTING, REMEMBERING
Saturday April 6, 2019, 2 pm
Jackman Hall, Art Gallery of Ontario
West Coast-based poets and friends, Cecily Nicholson and Juliane Okot Bitek will be joined by Toronto’s Lillian Allen (OCADU) in a conversation about cross-cultural memory and collective amnesia. The authors, whose work has contemplated these themes, will think through the poem as a document of memory: considering what poetry can add to existing narrow histories, and the role of memory in building resilient futures.
Please join us afterwards for a semi-private reception at OCAD University:
100 McCaul, MCA 258
(George Reid Wing — past the ceramics studios).
Snacks and refreshments (alcoholic and non) will be served.
To RSVP to the talk:
Jackman Hall and 100 McCaul are both accessible.
