    From Coachella Headdresses to Pho Follies - Let's Talk About Cultural Appropriation w/ Food Writer Dakota Kim

    Cultural appropriation is the usage of elements of one culture by another culture, often without permission and sometimes without a depth of experiential or psychological understanding. Cultural appropriation is not always harmful, but in light of the systemic racism that pervades our world, it often privileges white populations financially, emotionally + physically.

    The talk will also touch on how popular culture and media decide which cultures are popular, from native headresses + harajuku girls, to pho + tacos, and which are ignored.

    Food Editor at Paste, New York-based Dakota Kim also writes about TV, race and culture.

    Black Coffee + vegan Sweet Potato Pie will be served.

    Dedicated to creating a new groove-based music, THE DIGS embody the unique perspective of diversity that could only come from Canada's multicultural melting pot, Toronto. To dig is to extract from the ground by breaking up earth, and The Digs are a band reaching down into the roots of American pop music and pulling up a vibrant sound that is an organically constructed embarrassment of riches. Ultimately, The Digs consist of close friendships built upon the love of music, and the love for one another, and it is this dedication which gives them a consistently renewed energy with each jam-packed gig, each infectious groove, each funky beat. Catch The Digs while you can!
