Sankofa: Writing New Narratives

Jason Vasser-Elong
Wednesday, September 29, 2021 from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm

Free for Members!

Jason Vasser-Elong will conduct a writing exercise around the idea of memory and history. Inspired by Alicia Piller's exhibition, Unearthed: Time Keeping Mound City, Jason will discuss how through this region's past civilizations and powerful social political events, how we form our own sense of place and identity. The confluence of memory lives in shared histories. Through dialogue, the narratives we have inherited will be challenged. Ekphrastic poetry, by observation, will allow space for new stories as we remember that like a Blazing Star, our histories can be relit, relearned and reimagined.
