We will explore how our geographical and cultural differences inform our peoples’ practices and responses, and question how we can bring each other value and the inherent artistic possibilities within these conversations.

Postmemory of Genocide: Land, Inheritance, and Artistic Response is a collaboration between Polish Jewish artists in Poland and Indigenous artists based in Canada. This project grew out a desire to parallel these two spaces of genocide – Poland and Canada – and examine how Jews and Indigenous peoples are operating in relationship and response to their respective genocides.

We will explore how our geographical and cultural differences inform our peoples’ practices and responses, and question how we can bring each other value and the inherent artistic possibilities within these conversations.

We invite you to join an eclectic and celebrated group of artists and thinkers as they explore intergenerational trauma, memory, culture & faith, artistic practice, transmission of knowledge and healing processes
