"Private Lives, Secret Imaginations: Working with Survivors of Trauma"

Saturday, March 24 - 2:00PM to 2:45PM
Seacliff CD

Working collaboratively with survivors of trauma requires a great level of intimacy and trust combined with ethical and social boundaries set by the artist. What impact do these projects have on participants? What is at risk when making traumatic memories public? What is to be gained? These questions and others will be addressed via presentation of two recent projects: Lost Island maps and recreates one family's dreams and memories after surviving Hurricane Katrina; The Making of Talzar is a science fiction story about time travel, war, exile and displacement based on the life of an Iraqi immigrant in Sweden.
