Ways Forward, Listening Circle is dedicated to survivors of assault and harassment on university campuses. The Listening Circle will be facilitated by passionate professionals who have experience in holding the space safely and will nurture deep, honest, and active listening and sharing. This event is organized by Teesri Duniya Theatre in conjunction with IMPACTS: Collaborations to Address Sexual Violence on Campus, a McGill and SSHRC grant which examines rape culture on university campuses.
The following questions will be explored:
- The company is committed to multi-ethnic casting and compelling stories.How do we communicate with each other?
- How can you help someone who has a vastly different experience than you?
- How do we share pain, and understand and forgive our multiplicitous selves?
- How can art and creativity heal our trauma?
