Slight of Hand
Drawing as she talks, Nishat will demonstrate how a slight alternation to an existing image, a design, or a piece of language, can quickly change the meaning of a subject. In a time where people are excited, or at least, verbose, about diversity and inclusion, this talk is an opportunity to explore and illustrate this important topic.
