Event Notes

× “Assessing the language of invitation and hosting, and how it translates into action is how I learned to serve tea. A hyphenated existence, my life is my work, my work is my life. Some people can categorize and separate but those of us who are marginalized can’t afford to do so. Sometimes I wonder if our work has had to evolve into critical interrogation out of necessity? If we lived in a decolonized world what would we be making? Who would we be serving? I think we are all capable and deserving of knowing and living ourselves into these answers. This workshop invites participants to reflect and confront on who gets to have a seat at the table.” – Shaista Latif

“[Shaista] held such complexity for a group of strangers with unique and layered experiences…entirely impressive.”
– Cara Gold, Miles Nadal Jewish Community Centre

How I Learned to Serve Tea is created and facilitated by Shaista Latif in association with The Koffler Centre of the Arts and Why Not Theatre.
