Spring Gatherings: Music as Diversity Work - A moderated conversation with Nazila Kivi
The conversation will be in English.

Rhythmic Music Conservatory (RMC) and the music committee of Holmen Killjoy invites you to attend a moderated conversation with Danish-Persian critic, translator, essayist etc. Nazila Kivi about Sara Ahmeds Killjoy figure and what relevance this figure can have within the artistic educational system.
A ‘killjoy’ is someone who experiences and points out discrimination and inequality.
How can we use the killjoy figure at the artistic educational institutions to work together against discriminating structures, and become allies? What is a feminist Killjoy and whose joy is being killed? What can others (teaching staff, faculty, students that are not minoritized) do to create an atmosphere that is safe for the Killjoy to act in?

These questions + yours via the zoom chat.
Presented in collaboration with and moderated by Maxe Lund Johansen and Anna Wærum of the Music Committee from Holmen Killjoy.
