SOLD OUT: Tiffin Talk: Walking in Our Finest

08 July 2019, 12:00 - 08 July 2019, 14:00

Clothing, storytelling, expression and identity

PRESENTING PARTNER


Clothing, storytelling, expression and identity have always been woven together. In South Asian culture, and in Indigenous Turtle Island, clothing and regalia are crucial forms of cultural and personal expression, exploring the beauty, story, spirit, and belonging. In both cases, the history of colonization and industrialization has had long-lasting and destructive effects on traditional ways of making and wearing textiles.

What we see now is a resurgence. Contemporary Indigenous and South Asian fashion mix modern day glamour, high regalia and street styles, raising up clothing as an art form and a statement. Join acclaimed Musqueam weaver and knowledge keeper Debra Sparrow in conversation with Nep Sidhu, artist and creator of the clothing line Paradise Sportif. Moderated by Mita Naidu, this talk will examine philosophies of contemporary regalia, fashion, and adornment, and what it means to walk in our finest.

This talk is curated by Joleen Mitton, founder of Vancouver Indigenous Fashion Week.

Tiffin Talks: A lunchtime ideas series

Tiffin Talks is a five-part ideas series showcasing a diverse group of thought leaders, artists, innovators, and changemakers, gathering to share ideas and a meal together. Every Tiffin Talk features South Asian and Indigenous people in conversation with each other on a wide range of topics. Located at PAUSE, Indian Summer Festival’s outdoor pavilion gazing out onto the mountains and the Burrard Inlet, these long table lunches delivered hot on-site in Indian-style tiffins, will return you to your day both nourished and fed. In the spirit of turning strangers into friends, this is an opportunity to register for lunch for one. Listen to brilliant presenters, then dine and converse about new ideas surrounded by art, land, and ocean.

Each lunch is limited to 20 people. Book your spots early! All Tiffin Talk meals are vegetarian. When registering, please proceed to checkout where you will be prompted to select a vegan or gluten free option as desired.

Tiffin Talks are by donation, sliding scale. Fee will be waived upon request, no one turned away for lack of funds. (Pending availability, pre-registration is still required).

Museum of Vancouver is generously providing complimentary admission to Tiffin Talks attendees. Simply present your Tiffin Talk Eventbrite tickets at the Museum of Vancouver’s visitor services for free entry.
