Revisiting the AIDS Crisis - Time is Not A Line: A public conversation around the anxiety of knowing, forgetting, history and living

3:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.

Inspired by the current cultural production around HIV/AIDS and the early response, this public conversation, will provide a forum for those engaged in counter culture and queer world making. The afternoon event is a chance to collectively reckon with historical legacies and the present moment in pursuit of progressive futures. Issues around being overwhelmed, "feeling backward', identifying with the dead, archive activism, trans politics, and "ongoing AIDS" will be explored. Refreshments will be served. Hosted by Pato Hebert and Ted Kerr.

This event is part of a full weekend of discussion and film screenings:

Revisiting the AIDS Crisis and the Ongoing Epidemic
Health Challenges for the 21st Century

The series' goal is to explore and discuss health and wellness topics that impact our lives, communities, and world. Each activity within the series is designed to foster critical thinking and brainstorms that will seek solutions to real world health concerns. Developed by students and organizations, supportive services and academic  programs, the series by its very development is built on a framework of collaboration that promotes interdisciplinary approaches.
