RSVP

This event is free and open to the public. RSVP’s are not required to attend, only encouraged.

This event brings together an inter-disciplinary group of scholars, activists, artists, and curators who will interact with each other and with the audience in a conversation ‘without scripts’ in three performative acts focusing on the joys and anxieties of holding spaces for new socialities with the potential to enable anti-colonial futures, beyond the state and global capital.

Interactions will address the following key questions:

How can we experience…
 ethics with/out the modern subject? politics with/out the nation-state?
education with/out modern institutions?
 survivance with/out capitalism?
imagination with/out the intellect? being with/out separability?

With international & local guests:
