The Space between the Words: Stories from Assam, Nagaland and Arunachal
The panellists will explore the idea of occupying and using space — as a medium to tell stories, express ourselves, create solidarities and sustain ourselves as feminists, writers, artists, poets, and activists. Coming from vastly different backgrounds but often moving between different worlds — the urban and rural, capitalist and community-based, patriarchal and feminist, heteronormative and genderqueer, conflict and peace, the panel will try and address questions like: how do we use our existence and experience in these spaces, and the spaces in between, to write, reflect and move beyond binary identities?
