Sorry! I know it is none of my business, but…

Special Program

Sorry! I know it is none of my business, but…

In collaboration with Qorras

Tuesday 30 November, 18:30 to 20:00

In Arabic

Sorry! I know it is none of my business, but… is a proposition by Qorras

Please join us for a public conversation led by trans activists and looking to question why “bodies in transition” become “accountable bodies to liberation”. The conversation will be preceded by a short film produced by Qorras highlighting the questions and intrusive comments often pushed on trans people. The film will serve as an introduction to prompt a discussion with the public in an open-heart and conversational tone.

This event is part of the first edition of Power in the Collective, a new public program intiated by the Sursock Museum that recognizes the fundamental importance of groups and collectives in shaping, and producing situated knowledge both in theory and praxis. For each edition of the program, a local collective is invited to curate a series of events, spanning over a period of three months. The first cycle is proposed in collaboration with Qorras:

Qorras is a group working on collecting, producing, and disseminating knowledges related to issues of gender and sexuality. While based in Lebanon, its work addresses and connects with wider geographies spreading across the global south. By theorizing personal experiences and building on the work of others, Qorras aims to explore and experiment with methodologies for collaboratively producing and sharing knowledge in ways that serve its communities. Through its various projects, Qorras designs, coordinates, and implements accessible frameworks, methodologies and tools for individual and collective self-ethnography.

This event is made possible thanks to the support of the Lebanon Solidarity Fund launched by the Arab Fund for Arts and Culture – AFAC and Culture Resource (Al-Mawred Al-Thaqafy).
