The Chan Centre for the Performing Arts at UBC presents cartoonist, activist, and author Kate Evans in Threads, Friday, September 29, 2017 at 7:30pm as part of the Beyond Words series at the Telus Studio Theatre. Revealing accounts of hope and hardship, Evans will recall her experiences at France’s Calais refugee camp as told in her acclaimed 2017 graphic novel Threads: From the Refugee Crisis. With projected images from her book as the backdrop, and live musical accompaniment by Iranian-Canadian hand drummer Hamin Honari, Evans will share a compelling reading. The evening will conclude with a thought-provoking moderated panel discussion on the power of art, both as a response to crisis and a means to inspire political and social movements.
