This activity runs the duration of Culture Days.


The Civic Theatre

Slocan Valley and Nelson, BC

Directions: Stay tuned.



Offered in English.


Poet Zaynab Mohammed asks, “Are We Listening?” Through support from Canada Council of the Arts, the Civic Theatre in Nelson, and countless community members in the Slocan Valley region, Zaynab presents "Are We Listening?"— an endeavour which stems from her curiosity about the power of listening and what it means in relation to ourselves, to each other and to our natural environment. Through a series of interviews, Zaynab asks participants of this project, “What does listening mean to you? What are your thoughts and insights on listening? How do you listen? Why do you listen? When do you listen, and where does your listening happen within you?”

The short film "Are We Listening?" releases, here, on October 3, 2022.

There will be an in-person screening of Zaynab’s final video at The Civic Theatre in Nelson on October 3, 2022. For more information visit the link below.
