Reclaiming Identity: A Dinner and Conversation

January 10, 2019 6–9pm
SOMArts, 934 Brannan Street
Reorienting the Imaginaries presents a controversial study of the racialized and gendered form, insomuch that understanding the complexities of confronting one’s own (mis)representations becomes catalysts for subversion and creation of autonomous futures.
 

Take part in an intimate community dinner and discussion examining the impact of culture and identity misrepresentation on food, art, clothing, and health. Food will be provided by Oakland Bloom, whose mission is “to provide resources for aspiring food business owners from the refugee, immigrant, and under-resourced communities, to be part of the rapidly changing food culture of the Bay Area.”

**RSVPs for the dinner has reached capacity, however, the panel conversation will be open to the public at 7:00pm**
