19Rainbow Refugee Discussion Forum – Queer Migration and Homing: A g/local world cafe dialogue

Sunday July 28, 5:00-7:00 PM

Djavad Mowafaghian World Art Centre,
Goldcorp Centre for the Arts

Speakers: Tehseen A. (Rainbow Refugee), Chris Morrissey (Rainbow Refugee), Dai Kojima (UBC, Liu Institute), Fatima Jaffer (Trikone, UBC), cast and creators of When the Sun Comes Out – Canada’s first lesbian opera premiering at the Queer Arts Festival (August 5, 7, & 9, 2013).

Dialogue Facilitators: members of Our City of Colours, My Circle, Queer Migration Collective, and Rainbow Refugee Committee

To broaden the impact of our commissioned opera When the Sun Comes Out, QAF is partnering with Rainbow Refugee to engage in community outreach programs; giving voice to a wide range of true-life stories surrounding the issues raised by the opera: homophobic violence, migration, and the search for community and home.

This public discussion forum on queer migration is hosted by SFU’s Vancity Office of Community Engagement, and facilitated by Rainbow Refugee.

Following this event, the Queer Arts Festival is  offering a writing workshop, Escape Artists, led by Karen X. Tulchinsky, which ties in with their online memory project. For more details click here: http://queerartsfestival.com/event/escape-artists
