(Re)Making Urban Space + Eco-Arts and Media Festival event:
Unnerving the Archive, Disturbing its Keepers: an artist talk by MES alumna Anique Jordan.
At the intersection of urban, postcolonial, critical race studies, and artistic and curatorial practice, Anique Jordan will take us through some of her latest archival research, which reveals Black Canadian histories in the Ward neighbourhood, near Toronto’s AGO.
In the wake of the #MeToo movement, locally-based filmmakers and artists explore the implications this may have for women and trans folks belonging to communities of colour. Black communities, and Indigenous communities locally, and beyond. This discussion will focus on how each panelist’s work engages with ideas of racialized misogyny, sexual literacy, consent, and gender-based justice.
- Regent Park Film Festival
Anique Jordan is joining the Digital Activism Panel with award winning filmmaker Shazia Javed, and feminist community organizer and philosopher Erica Violet Lee. The talkback will be moderated by legal and academic writer Azeezah Kanji.
