Tasveer Community Speaks: Speaking The Taboo
We are thrilled to announce that we are back with another year of Community Speaks! 🗣
We hope you join us to be a witness to stories of personal empowerment, spiritual reckoning, family acceptance, and more. Join us as we dismantle the power of the taboo that silences us, through storytelling.
This program will feature monologues by our 8 participants on the theme “Speaking the Taboo” 🔥
Note: This year we made the difficult decision of putting Aaina and Yoni Ki Baat on hiatus. We hope that the pandemic will soon pass and once again Aaina and Yoni Ki Baat will be experienced in a physical space.
About CS: Community Speaks began in 2008 as a program of the annual festival Aaina: South Asian Women Focus. Partnering with API Chaya, Community Speaks was originally imagined as a forum for South Asians impacted by violence to break the isolation they have experienced by sharing their story. Over the years, many people have shared their stories, including young people, elders, all genders, and from various South Asian ethnic backgrounds.
⏰ Shows on April 10 & 11
April 9th show will follow the Tasveer Gala. To attend that event please buy your Gala ticket.
