The ‘Tavola Talk’ Series represents what can also be called a Table Talk or Panel Discussion. The first of five biweekly Tavola Talks, ArtistsTALK is a panel discussion with 6 artists as they speak through their mediums of film, movement and drama, music, story-telling, poetry, and art. All of these artists will speak to their Italian experience, and how these brave Italian immigrant women, The Quiet Immigrants, influenced their bodies of work. Guided by a moderator and through open-forum and participatory discussion, ArtistsTALK is sure to teach, touch, and captivate attendees.
The first Tavola Talk is being presented as part of Myseum Intersections. Stay up to date with the Quiet Immigrant Project for the following talks: thequietimmigrant.ca.
