Growing Room A Feminist Literary Festival presents Dream Me a Dream: Literary Futurisms
The future is just a dream that hasn’t happened yet. Sometimes, these dreams are nightmares, things we have to reckon with. And sometimes, these dreams imagine futures with joy, celebration, and love. Join Eden Robinson, Brandi Bird, and Serena Bhandar as they show you their dreamed realities and imagined futures beyond the world we live in now. Moderated by Jessica Johns.
Serena Lukas Bhandar is a brown/queer/genderfluid essayist and collaborateur in de-colonial transgressive art. Her writing comprises (in unequal parts): faction, mythopoeia, and solarpunk.
Brandi Bird is a Two-Spirit Saulteaux and Cree poet currently living and learning on Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh territory. They study Creative Writing at Douglas College.
Eden Robinson is a Haisla/Heiltsuk author who grew up in Haisla, British Columbia. Her novel Son of a Trickster was shortlisted for The Giller Prize. Her latest novel is Trickster Drift.
