We are pleased to host a talk by Kama La Mackerel (they/them), a Mauritian multidisciplinary artist, educator, cultural mediator, writer, and literary translator who lives and loves in tio’tia:ke (Montréal), Canada. Their work is grounded in the exploration of justice, love, healing, decoloniality and self-and collective-empowerment. Kama’s artistic practice spans across textile, visual, poetic, digital, and performative work; their work is at once narratological and theoretical, at once personal and political. A firm believer that artistic practices have the power to build resilience, to heal, and to act as forms of resistance to the status quo, their work articulates an anti-colonial praxis through cultural production.
Live captions and ASL available. Event will be recorded and uploaded to YouTube.
