Come and take part in an event where the Listening Choir - a Colombian choir- and Umurutasaté -a Rwandan singer- will sing together with musicians from Quebec, Rwanda and Colombia to offer a space where the rhythms, melodies, words and lyrics of our ancestors will enthuse everybody to sing along, listen, dance, and wonder:

what new sounds may we create together,
now that we all live here,
in the Kanien’kehá:ka territory,
a land of living memories,
an unceded land?

To whom and using what sounds
may we say thank you
for welcoming us to this unceded territory?

How can you participate? Attend the discussion in person (note, there is a maximum of 25 audience members permitted in the space) or online by registering for the Zoom meeting or watching live on 4th Space's YouTube channel.
