Race & Space Conversations III

March 14, 2023 @ 12:00 pm 1:30 pm MDT

How do cultural landscapes shape our public memory, and how do design decisions affect that process of commemoration? When creating or conserving memorial landscapes, what aesthetic, historical, cultural, social, and political issues are artists, designers, activists, communities, and other stakeholders navigating?

In this Race & Space Conversation, moderator and journalist James Russell will speak with panelists Justin Garrett Moore, the inaugural program officer for the Humanities in Place program at the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation; Peggy King Jorde, cultural projects consultant; and Jha D Amazi, director of the Public Memory and Memorials Lab at MASS Design Group, to engage with these questions. Past and present case studies will illuminate the motivations, design ethos, and community engagement processes behind several significant memorial landscapes.

This thought-provoking, wide-ranging conversation moderated by Mr. Russell will be held virtually.
