Home Made Visible – Fredericton Workshop

Thursday, April 18 at 6 PM – 8 PM
Bibliothèque publique de Fredericton Public Library

12 rue Carleton St., Fredericton, New Brunswick E3B 5P4
PROGRAM DESCRIPTION
Indigenous, Black and People of Colour communities are disproportionately underrepresented in all media. How do past images unearthed from personal and institutional archives come to shape new stories?

The Home Made Visible tour brings a personal lens to Indigenous and visible minority archives through FREE exhibitions, screenings, and workshops in libraries across Canada. Visit HomeMadeVisible.ca/Tour

WORKSHOP

‘Memento: Archiving Memory’
Time: Thursday April 18th, 6 – 8 pm
Capacity: 8 (Please register in advance)
Facilitators: Nadine Arpin and Lisa Jodoin

In this hands-on workshop, Home Made Visible commissioned Indigenous filmmakers Lisa Jodoin and Nadine Arpin explore the idea of the personal archive. They ask participants to come prepared with an item of significance; any object which holds a memory or story. Every participant will have the opportunity to create both digital and physical documentation of the object as a starting point to begin their own archival practice. Through activities and exercises, the facilitators will guide workshop participants in expressing the memory and story attached to their object and then produce a personal archive: an emailable digital audio file or a mailable photo postcard.

 

EXHIBITION

Date: Apr 3 – 24th

Visit the library during operating hours to view the collection of short films on designated computers.

All films are ONLY available with english captions.
