Expression Against Oppression: Photography, Poetry & Spoken Word

Friday, March 24th @ 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM

Portraits, Poetry and Prose.

The Society of Graduate and Professional Students Equity Commission and the Queen’s International Student Centre invites you to their event: Visible but Invisible: A Night of Anti-Oppression and Artistic Expression.

This photo exhibition highlights the experiences of Queen’s students within the University and wider Kingston community to confront our implicit biases and internalized prejudices, and give marginalised student voices the opportunity to share these experiences in an accountable space.

The night will include performances from Queen’s spoken word artists, an Ottawa-based hip-hop jazz artist, and headlined by Ikenna Onyegbula a.k.a OpenSecret – a member of the nationally acclaimed four member spoken word troupe, The Recipe, founder and artistic director of Canada’s National Youth Spoken Word Poetry Festival, YOUTHCANSLAM, and 2014 World Poetry Slam Champion.

We will also be joined by Collective Reflections as part of our joint mandate to showcase opinions, anecdotes, and any creative expressions on topics included but not limited to: feminism, race & ethnicity, ability & accessibility, sexuality and gender diversity, and mental health.

Don’t miss out on this exciting night! We look forward to seeing everyone come out on Friday March 24th from 7-10 pm in Robert Sutherland Hall (across Goodes Hall) in room 202.

[SQGS Equity Commission is committed to making our events accessible for all. Room 202 is located on the ground floor of Robert Sutherland Hall. The venue includes an accessible washroom, an entrance with automatic doors, and elevators to higher floors. We will also be utilizing audio equipment to amplify performances.
