People Change: Vivek Shraya
October 01 at 6pm
Multi-disciplinary Canadian artist and seven-time Lambda Literary Award finalist Vivek Shraya (I’m Afraid of Men) returns to TIFA to present her latest book, People Change. An insightful and honest handbook that inspires us to discover other versions of ourselves, People Change is both a radical embracing of change, and a meditation that challenges Western concepts of identity. Dualy inspired by Hinduism and Madonna, Shraya will share her impulse to constantly change, and reflect on why many of us fear change or are drawn to it. Join us for this liberating conversation on living a life of re-invention.
Interviewed by Yolanda Marshall.
Please note, this event will NOT be followed by a book signing.
