As part of our ongoing Koffler Salon series, Writing Home will be focused on the complex interconnections between place and memory, dislocation and identity. An eclectic group of four writers – Jamal Mansour, Tea Hadziristic, Fan Wu and Ayesha Chatterjea – will participate in this evening of readings, music and conversation, exploring personal connections to, and ideas of, “home.”
2-3 selections from each participating writer will be published/featured as a collection of short prose and poetry on Koffler.Digital.
PLUS special guest musician Kae Sun. The Ghanaian-born, Canadian singer-songwriter mixes lush R&B, melancholy folk and smart pop – with an almost invisible, but still informative, touch of hip-hop.
Can’t make the event? Watch the live stream at Facebook.com/KofflerArts or on Periscope @KofflerArts.
Koffler Salon is an eclectic evening of art, ideas, conversation and drinks hosted by Nick Hutcheson. Enjoy special evening access to the Koffler Gallery – an opportunity to check out our current exhibition, Yonder.
