An Evening with with Kamila Shamsie, Raghu Karnad & Joe Sacco
Speaking of art born of war, the novelist Kamila Shamsie writes “In the ugly moments of history – times of conflict, war, oppression or censorship – two questions are provoked over and over: what is good art in such times? And what good is art in response to such times?”
Join this group of eminent thinkers – novelists, graphic artists and journalists as they explore these questions, taking us from historical sites of war (World War II, Hiroshima) to present day sites of conflict (Palestine, Syria, Afghanistan).
This event has been made possible thanks to support from the BC Arts Council and SFU Woodwards.
