Auditory art exhibit coming to NAIT’s Main Campus

EDMONTON – NAIT students will hear cat-calling, harassment and objectifying comments as part of  This is What it Feels Like, an auditory art exhibit coming to NAIT’s Main Campus on Feb. 12. The installation, in which participants walk into a dimmed enclosure where they hear harassing, cat-calling voices, is intended to shift attitudes and beliefs around what is acceptable. The exhibit premiered last year at Art Street in Sacramento.

This is What it Feel Like is featured as part of NAIT Healthy Relationship Week, a partnership between NAIT Counselling Services & Chaplaincy and Student Engagement.
