From the Eye to the Ear

August 18, 2022 7:30PM-8:30PM

Event Information:
From the Eye to the Ear was a communal reading to the ravine that took place at the observation deck of the Chester Hill Lookout. We read selections from texts on and around the Don to the expansive valley: texts in an ongoing bibliography that have been both guiding forces and sources of wonder in approaching the intricate network of the river. As the sun set and gave way to night, we followed this reading with a discussion on the moving nature of oration considering the power of words, writing and narrative as forces of enchantment, mythology and imaginaries. Those in attendance were invited to participate in the reading and discussion in whichever way suits them best and were encouraged to bring their own textual connections to speak out to the river and ravine.
