Documented: The Community Blackboard
Interactive Artist Talk, Saturday, February 23, 2 pm.
Artist and educator Muriel Hasbun will lead an interactive dialogue about family archives and personal histories, and how they inform our collective memory. She will share her own family’s migration story and discuss how art making has helped her construct a sense of identity and belonging. She invites the public to come together in Documented: The Community Blackboard, a safe space where our own documents, such as family photos, recipes and letters, register our presence and the stories that we carry.
