SA Talks: Archiving Love, Care & Survival @ East Scarborough Storefront
Jan 29 @ 17:00 – 19:00

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
In this workshop, participants will practice three means of care (food, love, and art), which have been vital to the survival of Tamil and other bipoc communities in Scarborough. The goal is to have conversations on what community care and survival can look like for everyone in the room. Using storytelling, unearthing lesser known local histories of community solidarity, and participating in artful archiving using clothing, images, and other unusual items, this workshop will touch on loneliness, loss, and pain, and collectively emerge feeling soothed as a community.

*Please note that this is a WORKSHOP SERIES and that participants who would like to attend are HIGHLY ENCOURAGED TO REGISTER AND ATTEND ALL sessions of the workshop*

ABOUT THE FACILITATOR
Vasuki Shanmuganathan is an arts informed archivist, researcher, and educator. She draws from her diverse lived experiences and work in arts, women’s health, refugee advocacy, and youth collectives. She is also the founder of the Tamil Archive Project (TAP) and Critical Mass Series (CMS), which combine knowledge translation, archives, and art into accessible community events. Her exhibit on “Archiving Displacement” imagined a people’s archive in Regent Park using its local thrift stores as sites of community memory.

This workshop is part of Scarborough Arts’ SA Suite of Programs — 2019. For more workshops like this, visit http://bit.ly/SASuite2019
