ISF2020: Tiffin Talks – Zanani / Zamana / Zameen

04 July 2020, 12:00 - 04 July 2020, 14:00

Presented in partnership with

Zanani / Zamana / Zameen – Feminist thinking, society, and place

Zanani (za-na-ni): the feminine
Zamana (za-ma-na): time, age, period
Zameen (za-meen): place, ground, land

Join writer Shauna Singh Baldwin, filmmaker Baljit Sangra, and visual artist Sandeep Johal for an in-depth discussion moderated by Suvi Bains on how place and society affect how we imagine the feminine. The speakers reflect on the clash of tradition and modernity within the context of patriarchy and gender inequality and share how their work creates space for South Asian voices. Hear their perspectives on cultural identity, storytelling, and place in South Asian culture, and how these themes inform their artistic practice. The talk will be followed by a virtual Q&A session with the audience.

Usually, as part of Indian Summer Festival’s Tiffin Talks lunchtime ideas series, we provide a tiffin meal to accompany the conversation. Food, and ideas, and coming together are at the core of this experience. Given the pandemic and virtual aspect of this reimagined event, we now invite you to make your own lunch or place a booking through our long time partners Ms Tiffin (Vancouver) or Samosa House (Surrey) or your favourite local spot. In this way, we can still share a meal together – even if from afar.

Watch it on our Facebook page or YouTube channel.
