rural readingThe first annual Rural Reading Riot is coming to the Durham Art Gallery.

Rural Reading Riot (RRR) is a new literary and visual arts festival that combines performance, spoken, visual and written practices of artists and writers. While generated in so-called rural Ontario, RRR seeks to connect and reach beyond rural boundaries, gather and share through riotous collectivity, radical care and collaboration.

Durham Art Gallery’s first annual Rural Reading Riot is a part of the exhibition What Haven’t We Learnt Yet, Still? curated by Jaclyn Quaresma. Artist Pamila Matharu dedicates a virtual baithak (the Panjabi/Urdu/Hindi word for lounge) as an online gathering space to host the festival.

Taking place over three days, from Friday, October 23 to Sunday, October 25, 2020 RRR brings you a slow-release-series of commissioned letters by visual and literary artists including Kait Dickinson, Pamila Matharu, Janet Rogers, Sarah Taylor and more as well as the first-ever online performance of A Choir of Demands and Desires on Repeat by Annie Wong in collaboration with Faith Arkorful, Hanan Hazime, Fiona Raye Clarke, Angela Sun, and Rebecca Sweets.

You are invited to join the artists, writers and performers by attending one of their free online workshops, click the link for more.
