Mentoring Artists for Women's Art: Theory and Beer: The Queerness of Passing with Hailey Primrose, April 25

Thursday, April 25, 2019

6:30-8pm

Duke of Kent Legion, 227 McDermot Ave.

Free! No need to register, just come!

This Theory and Beer will explore the relationships we have with our multiple selves—those which are immediately recognized by others as socially encrypted and those we must reveal in order to be seen. What role does one's public image play in validating one's identities and how do we engage with visible and invisible traits when creating artwork?

Hailey Primrose is a queer Métis artist, musician and activist born and raised on Treaty 1 Territory. Focussing on queer, trans and decolonizing discourses, her goal is to make meaningful contributions to feminist thought via creativity.

About Theory and Beer: It's fun! It's theoretical! And you don't have to drink beer! MAWA presents informal critical discussion led by guest facilitators. Theory and Beer convenes on Thursday evenings, once a month. Each meeting has a text-based focus, with weblinks to readings provided in advance (go to mawa.ca to click on the links). Do the readings beforehand or come to the Legion at 6:15 pm and pick up a copy of the text(s). The more familiar you are with the readings, the more the conversation will "cook"! The Legion is wheelchair accessible. People of all genders welcome.
