Join Diaspora Dialogues on February 23rd at the Heliconian Club for Hello, Neighbour — a three tiered community engagement project that begins with residents of Toronto and ends with live performances of new works by six artists!
DD invited residents of Toronto to submit short content pieces animating a favourite element of the city; an intersection or a neighbourhood; a restaurant, a building, a park. Visit diasporadialogues.com to read some of these terrific submissions from the Toronto public.
Six pieces were then taken as inspiration by writers/artists Ibi Kaslik, Jules Lewis, Jason Maghanoy, Rasiqra Revulva, Donna-Michelle St. Bernard, and Phoebe Wang to create new poems, stories and/or performance pieces about Toronto.
Each of these writers/artists will be on hand February 23rd to perform their commissions as well as sit down with Nana aba Duncan, host of CBC’s Fresh Air. These discussions will be taped and turned into podcasts available through TOK.
