Nelson Culture Days: Screening of ‘Are We Listening?’

October 3 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

We welcome you to immerse yourself in the world of listening. BC Culture Days Ambassador Zaynab Mohammed has interviewed nearly 50 people from Nelson to Slocan, asking them what listening means for them. These interviews are the soundbites of the evening and the backbone to the film. Five local artists will perform their craft by interpreting the soundbites from the interviews.

Xochilt Ramirez: I am a storyteller who is looking for the best way of being one. Moving from creative writing and dancing. Navigating an experimental phase of expression.

The Panoptical Poet: An environmental and social justice word warrior who examines the many varying viewpoints of our current global reality.

RÜ Rose: A woman who sings, catches songs and creates art. Her life and creations are inspired by her connection with the land.

Corey Zavier: Meandering amidst entropy exploring the many facets of nature.

David Hecht: Music is movement. Movement is dance, we dance and play music.

The public will have the opportunity to participate in a collaborative art installation. So come early! And finally, we will be screening, “Are We Listening?” A micro-documentary filmed and edited by Kai Cabödyna. This short films’ soundtrack highlights key moments from Zaynab’s interviews with her community members. She brings the words to life through her expression and artistic creation, in collaboration with Kai Cabödyna . Come prepared to listen and learn.
