Diaspora Dialogues at Davis
The 905 Road Show: A Creativity Cabaret is coming to Davis Campus as part of a three-city tour of the 905 region: Markham, Mississauga and Brampton. A mash-up of readings, art, music, and drama by Sheridan students, faculty, and community writers and artists, the 905 Road Show is presented by Diaspora Dialogues in collaboration with the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences with the aim to use the power of narratives to forge, through creative dialogue, a collective sense of identity that simultaneously recognizes and respectfully explores our differences. Performers include:
*Anna Yin, Mississauga’s inaugural poet laureate
*Jennifer Chambers, Sheridan professor and writer
*Lalo Moreno, sound engineer and recording artist
*Shaista Latif, playwright
*The Real Sun, singer, songwriter, and performer
The event will take place on Wednesday, November 25 at the Lounge outside of Union Coffee (near the Den) at Sheridan’s Davis Campus. Doors open at 6:00 p.m. Admission is free and open to the public.
Diaspora Dialogues supports the creation and presentation of new fiction, poetry and drama that reflect the complexity of the city through the eyes of its richly diverse writers. Publishing and mentoring activities, as well as a multidisciplinary performance festival, help encourage the creation of a literature that is vibrant and inclusive, while bringing these works to a wide audience.
We hope you can join us for this entertaining evening of creative cultural exchange!
