Soundstreams: Taboo Encounters

March 11 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm


How can art challenge taboos and break free from social norms?

Taboos exist throughout our society, dictating how we should and shouldn’t behave, and enforcing social norms.

Join Soundstreams on March 11th at the Gladstone Hotel for “Taboo Encounters,” an interdisciplinary exploration of the ways artists, musicians, and other cultural workers challenge taboos in their work.

Some of the most exciting and important art and thinking takes place outside of accepted social norms – often transforming our understanding of what is taboo over time. We will unpack “Taboo Encounters” in a stimulating evening of intimate discussion and music on March 11 at the Gladstone. Special guests and performers will be announced shortly.

“Encounters” is a free performance and discussion series, held at The Gladstone Hotel. Discover and engage with Soundstreams music and artists in a relaxed, informal atmosphere.
