Tupperware Talks- lunchtime panel. Creative Memorialisation: making meaningful experiences
The pandemic is ongoing, but we all need places to pause and reflect. How can the arts create meaningful experiences for commemoration and memorialisation? Join this expert panel to explore how past experiences of commemorative events can inform how we approach the memorialisation of Covid 19.
The session will be chaired by Professor Paul Gough, Vice Chancellor of Arts University Bournemouth. A painter, broadcaster and writer, Professor Gough has exhibited internationally and is represented in the permanent collection of the Imperial War Museum, London, the Canadian War Museum, Ottawa, and the National War Memorial, New Zealand. In addition to roles in national and international higher education, his research into the imagery and aftermath of war has been presented at global conferences, symposia and to audiences throughout the world. He has also published extensively about the arts of war and peace; and also on street art, including an edited book on the street artist Banksy.
Artist Luke Jerram, creator of In Memoriam, has extensive experience of creating contemplative public art that invites participation.
Creative Producers Sud Basu and Emma Dunton, who were part of the 14:18 NOW team that delivered the UK’s cultural programme for the First World War centenary – and are currently working on a number of other commemorative projects.
Jasmine Wilson (Director of Engagement, Studio Wayne McGregor) has produced the dance work that accompanies In Memoriam during this week.
