Join a conversation with Maurice R. Greenberg World Fellows Korto Reeves, Udo Jude Ilo, and Hyppolite Ntigurirwa.
This event will bring speakers with a wealth of experience to a discussion on healing justice and peace building. It will focus on how citizen-led initiatives influence memory to shape their understanding of history and their society’s future. The speakers will center on non-traditional processes and “artivism” and how it has driven and defined memorialization. The discussion will focus on the experiences of work in Sierra Leone, South Africa, Rwanda, Liberia, and Nigeria.
