As a culmination of their installations in Never Apart's Upper Galleries B and C, Alisha Mascarenhas and Jordan Brown will present an emergent textual performance addressing the inextricability of the poem and the socio-political systems in which it is encountered. Their performance will be followed by a Clap Back session on healing through individual/collective art practice. The Clap Back is a space to informally discuss everything from pop culture phenomena to divisive political issues. Join us and share your insights on art, community and wellness.
This 2-day intensive workshop in voice and movement is an opportunity to dive deep in to your soma and awaken from the inside out.

Moderated by CC:MTL co-founder Keesha Chung, this roundtable conversation is a space for people to come together and discuss how to preserve and maintain your mental health by fostering self-love and loving relationships. Featuring special guests: Mouna Traoré and Nènè Myriam Konaté

This Clap Back session will focus on solidarity with Muslims within and beyond Canadian borders. Muslim voices will be prioritized throughout this discussion as we unpack the significance of recent events and explore how interfaith solidarity – particularly between Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour – can contribute to the process of healing while preventing future tragedies.
Inspired by the one and only So(u)lange(l)'s A Seat at the Table. This Clap Back will unpack the album + its visuals as we look back on a full year of the Clap Back, what this space/time has come to represent and the shapes it may take in the future.
Sounds will be curated by the wonderful Colin MusoNi + the brilliant Kosisochukwu Nnebe and the lovely Keesha Chung will be joining us as co-hosts.
