Watch a recording of this event in which dhaqan collective discuss the important role of camels and their milk for health and healing in indigenous Somali culture. The dhaqan collective were in conversation with archaeologist Sada Mire, with questions from the audience.
The in-venue audience also heard hear a new immersive soundscape created by the collective, with contributions from a local Somali community based at the British Somali Community Centre in Somers Town, London. Their voices were recorded at a collaborative workshop where the participants discussed the meaning of camel milk in their lives.
The hosts used frankincense reed diffusers during this event, for a more sensual experience.
The conversation but not the soundscape was live-streamed on our YouTube channel. You can get tickets for either the in-person event or the online conversation below.
The dhaqan collective is a Somali feminist art collective based in Bristol.
