Trikone-Chicago is proud to announce KalaKranti 2010. This momentous event celebrates Trikone-Chicago's first year of activism and community building in the Chicago area. KalaKranti, a fusion of artistic creation [kala] and revolution [kranti], recognizes that change can and does come from artistic practice, and we have an incredible line-up of performers and activists for you! This event also recognizes the activists that came before us and paved the way for Trikone’s successes. Ifti Nasim and Sarwat Rumi, two Chicago based poets and activists, will be honored for their contributions to the queer South Asian community and the Chicago community at large. The evening will feature classical music, spoken word poetry, dance, and theatrical solos. KalaKranti is the first event of its kind in Chicago and we look forward to seeing you there.
