Join us for a talk with Thenmozi Soundararajan, a filmmaker, transmedia artist, and storyteller. As an anti-caste activist, Soundararajan uses her work to center the voices of Dalits, focusing on the structural and exclusionary violence they face in India and across the diaspora.
Thenmozhi Soundararajan is a Dalit-American artist, technologist, and the Executive Director of Equality Labs, an art and technology startup supporting South Asian religious, cultural, and genderqueer communities in the United States and South Asia. Through her work she organizes communities to fight impunity, state violence, anti-blackness, caste apartheid, and religious intolerance. Her work has been recognized by The Robert Rauschenberg Foundation, Producers Guild of America Diversity Program, The Museum of Contemporary Art and Magnum Foundation.
