Event description: 

As part of Prof. Harris’s Archive Aesthetics and Community Storytelling course, together with Yale’s Center for Collaborative Arts and Media, director and immersive artist Tamara Shogaolu will be giving a talk on her award-winning transmedia series Queer in Time of Forced Migration.

The three-part series combines first-person testimonies, visceral animation, and the latest digital storytelling techniques to center the voices of LGBTQ refugees, following their experiences from the 2011 Revolutions in the Middle East and North Africa to today’s Europe. The three projects in the series have premiered at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York, Tribeca Immersive’s Storyscapes, and other major international festivals.

Having worked with Tamara on this series as a producer, I can promise that this event will be a unique and meaningful opportunity to hear from her personally about her vision for Queer in a Time of Forced Migration and her years of work bringing it to life.
