Exploring the Relationship Between Sonic Embodiments and Otherness with Kate Lahey - Seminar @The Beaverbrook Art Gallery

10:00 - 12:00 PM Saturday 17 June FREE

  • All ages

This workshop will explore the relationship between sonic embodiments and otherness, particularly queerness and disability. This workshop will be run like a seminar, offering thoughts and facilitating discussion about conceptual entry points for theorizing the intersection of sound and queer and disabled embodiments. 

Kate Lahey is a writer, musician and educator who holds a PhD from the Women and Gender Studies Institute, University of Toronto. As frontperson of Weary, Kate recently released their sophomore album ‘Hush’. Kate is also a course instructor at the Gender Studies Department at Memorial University of Newfoundland. Kate’s work explores intergenerational trauma, material and visual culture and memory in Newfoundland. As a Newfoundlander, Kate’s practice engages family knowledge. Kate lives in a two hundred year old salt box house on the Atlantic Ocean in Holyrood, Newfoundland with her partner and aussie shepherd Leia.
