We Were Once People: A Conversation about Displacement and Belonging

We Were Once People: A Conversation about Displacement and Belonging

What does it mean to lose your language, your voice? Join d.talks in partnership with the Esker Foundation on Friday, October 8, to hear this topic discussed by d.talks and Esker Foundation writer-in-residence, Sue-Shane Tsomondo in conversation with fellow African artists JustMoe and Mpoe Mogale.

We Were Once People: A Conversation about Displacement and Belonging is part of Sue-Shane Tsomondo’s response to the exhibition RELATIONS: Diaspora and Painting. The topic is loosely inspired by a quote from NoViolet Bulwayo’s debut novel, We Need New Names: “Because we were not in our country, we could not use our own languages, and so when we spoke our voices came out bruised.”

The event is free. To register, visit https://eskerfoundation.com/programs/we-were-once/.
