For the February meeting of our Oral History and Artmaking group, we will be delighted to welcome Lisa Ndejuru, artist and scholar from Concordia University, Montreal. Lisa will share with us some of her current work and the questions it raises:
From I to we – exploring arts-based approaches to life stories of genocide, war and other human rights violations, and the generative relationship between life story, creative transformation/transmediation (writing/performance), present past and future.
Friday February 26, 2016
1:30 to 4:30
at The Ground Floor
132 Fort York Blvd.
Lisa Ndejuru is working on her research project about the life stories of Montrealers who have been displaced by genocide, war and other human rights violations. She believes in the importance of engaging creatively with the history of mass violence in order to build an inclusive, cohesive, resilient and responsible society. She analyses the interviews and other research-creation projects by the 2005-2012 Montreal Life Stories project.
