PAUSE PAVILION PARTNER: Vancity

Tiffin Talks: A lunchtime ideas series


Tiffin Talks is a five-part ideas series featuring a diverse group of thought leaders, artists, innovators, and changemakers, gathering to share ideas and a meal together.


Located at PAUSE, Indian Summer Festival’s outdoor pavilion gazing out onto the mountains and the Burrard inlet, these longtable lunches delivered hot onsite in Indian-style tiffins, will return you to your day both nourished and fed.

In the spirit of turning strangers into friends, this is an opportunity to register for lunch for one. Listen to brilliant presenters, then dine and converse about new ideas surrounded by art, land, and ocean.


Each lunch is limited to 20 people. Book your tickets early!


Tiffin Talks are by donation, with a suggested $10 for lunch. Fee will be waived upon request, no one turned away for lack of funds. (Pending availability, pre-registration is still required).


All Tiffin Talk meals are vegetarian. When registering, please proceed to checkout where you will be prompted to select a vegan or gluten free option as desired.

Tiffin Talks: New Museology

Shaheen Nanji, Marika Echachis Swan, Ammar Mahimwalla


Dayanita Singh’s Museum Bhavan helps us reimagine what a museum is. The museum as an institution holds memory; what memories, and for whom? What would a museum without walls look like? How ought pieces that were historically stolen be engaged with now? What is the museum’s role in educating new migrants in this specific place? Join three brilliant cultural producers who are engaging/disrupting/rearranging in varying and strategic ways with the changing role of museums in society.
