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.
