Reading Group: Facing Brownness led by Hariharan Vanan

22 Oct 2019, Tue 06:00 PM - 08:30 PM
The Exhibition Hall, Block 43 Malan Road

Led by Hariharan Vanan, Publications intern, Grey Projects

This session is part of the longer programme Facing Brownness that takes place in October and November at Grey Projects. The readings are recently recorded personal narratives of meeting and facing one’s brownness, sometimes as self-reflection and intimate dialogue, and other times by the force of antagonism and violence. Participants and audiences are encouraged to share their experiences, and to speak to the intersections between class and race within the classroom and the school. One of the aims of this programme is to record the everyday tactics of facing brownness, from strategic silences to confrontation to survival amnesia, to form a general handbook for surviving racism in Singapore.



Hariharan Vanan (Singapore) is interested in critical questions surrounding lived experiences relating to race and class, as well as the intersections between the two. He is a Publications intern with Grey Projects, and a Sociology and Arts and Culture Management undergraduate at the Singapore Management University.
