We Are Not a Prize: A Black Discussion on Cultural Appropriation

On Tuesday evening June 27th, join us at Forth Cafe on McDermot. Our panel will be discussing their Afrocentric perspective on recent news around cultural appropriation in Canada. 

This event is, in part, brought about by the recent outrage caused by an article in a major Canadian magazine. The editor of the article stated that acts of cultural appropriation in writing should actually be praised in some form of a reward – an "Appropriation Prize." This same article was then published in their magazine's special issue dedicated to Indigenous writing.

Our discussion aims to unfold the effect of cultural appropriation in relation to the black experience, tackle misconceptions around the topic followed by an open Q&A session should time allow it.

Panel members:

Uzoma Chioma - Entrepreneur, Registered Psych. Nurse, former Team Canada Basketball Player & Founder of QPOC Winnipeg

Adeline Bird - Creator of Soul Unexpected & Author of the book "Be Unapologetically You: A Self-Love Guide for Women of Colour"

Free! Films @ Forth "Mon Oncle" Hosted by Winnipeg Architecture

Mon Oncle
Directed by Jacques Tati
1958, France, 116 minutes
French (with English subtitles)
Slapstick prevails again when Jacques Tati’s eccentric, old-fashioned hero, Monsieur Hulot, is set loose in Villa Arpel, the geometric, oppressively ultramodern home of his brother-in-law, and in the antiseptic plastic hose factory where he gets a job. The second Hulot movie and Tati’s first color film, Mon oncle is a supremely amusing satire of mechanized living and consumer society that earned the director the Academy Award for best foreign-language film.

Poking fun at gadgetry and the car obsessed modern suburban landscape, while revelling in the charming persistence of the nearby town centre, Mon Oncle is an amusing satire of the modern lifestyle of materialist suburbanites. This Academy Award-winning film is as relevant today as it ever was—especially perhaps in Winnipeg where enlightened critiques of suburbia and modernity have yet to fully land and where those who cherish the creative force of anachronism tend to thrive.

The film is screened by the Winnipeg Architecture Foundation, in partnership with Forth. Beer and unlimited popcorn for $5.

Daniel Robertson, Orlando Gloom, Veil

Films @ Forth will be back next week! This week:

All ages show in the Forth Cafe, admission is by donation and the event is open to the general public. 

Artists:

Daniel Terrence Robertson 
https://danielterrencerobertson.bandcamp.com/ 
Daniel Terrence Robertson is a Vancouver-based composer and multi-instrumentalist whose gentle voice, tender intuition and high-art deliberation are remarkably resonant. He has shared the stage with the likes of Homeshake, Dralms, Holy Hum (formerly In Medias Res), Francesca Belcourt (Mu), Gang Signs, Skye Wallace, Sam Tudor, Douse, Swim Team, and Hazy. His debut album Death was released by Heavy Lark in November of 2016. Listeners are immersed in Robertson’s clairvoyant interior world of melancholy, intrepid love, and uncertainty of being. Drawing on classical and experimental influences, Robertson composes and records in solitude. Unflinching and beautiful, his songs emerge to trace a retrospective geography of his internal and physical spaces.


“[Death is] a collection of eight beautifully heart-wrenching and haunting piano-driven electronic-influenced songs. Imagine Sufjan Stevens on Xanax playing stark arrangements on a keyboard.” - Beatroute

“Robertson’s voice appears […] as a welcoming-yet-ghastly host, leading the
listener through the album’s ambiance” - Discorder Magazine

“[From] West Coast experimental auteur Daniel Terrence Robertson […] we hear a mix of echo chamber digi-drums, pink-and-lavender tie-dye synth sonics and a gentle, defeated admission from Robertson: ‘God, I'm sorry I tried.’” - Exclaim!

“Synths and vocals are lightly off balance, never really restful, but in love with a groove all the same. Tones of reverence and meditation flirt with a few ghosts over the course of eight tracks.” - Greypoint Owl point

Orlando Gloom
