Kaurs Talk Politics
Kaurs Talk Politics (KTP) is a new initiative launched in the Vancouver-area of Canada.
The political, social, economic and religious herstory of Sikh women has in many ways been written out, interpretted and/or marginalized out of contemporary ways of Sikh knowing. SaFaR – The Sikh Feminist Research Institute, endeavours to challenge contemporary spaces of voice, praxis and knowledge-making that remain largely androcentric, through engaging in Sikh traditions of gender equity.
Thus, Kaurs Talk Politics (KTP), will provide a space grounded in the praxis of Miri-Piri
, encouraging Kaurs to cultivate and interact with the spirit of their Sikh history so as to, challenge and empower through Sikhi
to reclaim their socio-political agency, their Divine rights to equity and dignity, and physical claim to spaces of political and social praxis.
- A space for Sikh women and girls to discuss issues, current events and politics.
- A space where women can practice the sharing of knowledge, expressing views and thoughts and voicing their opinions.
- A space where women of all different paths, living and expressing Sikhi in their different ways, can come together to discuss issues that effect all women, Sikhs and the Panth. Everything from the political and social scene in Punjab right now, to the needs of our local communities here in Canada.
- A space where you will not be judged on your eyebrows, make up, clothes, keski, dastaar, rumaal or hair; rather, a space where your process, experience, ideas and passion are what speak for you.
