Monuments: Shaping Public Space, Memory & Culture: Discussion
with NEFA and WBUR in Boston
New England Foundation for the Arts and WBUR presented a discussion on Monuments: Shaping Public Space, Memory, and Culture recorded by the HowlRound TV network at howlround.tv at 2:30 p.m. PST (San Francisco) / 4:30 p.m. CST (Chicago) / 5:30 p.m. EST (Boston) on Thursday 13 December 2018.
Join NEFA and WBUR for a public conversation about monuments and their role in shaping public space, memory, and culture. This conversation will explore how monuments shape our understanding of who and what is “the public” and will examine how monuments can honor stories that we want to carry into the future.
This public conversation, moderated by Maria Garcia of WBUR’s the ARTery, includes:
- local artists L'Merchie Frazier and Steve Locke
- Kenneth Bailey from the Design Studio for Social Intervention
- Dr. Vivian Johnson, Professor Emeritus of Education, Boston University
This conversation is inspired by L’Merchie Frazier’s Creative City-supported project, New Urban Monuments: Stand Up Inside Yourself, a collaborative community art project created by city residents and Frazier. This project examines the current monuments in our public spaces that shape public memory, particularly here in Boston, and explores what we want to remember as makers of our own stories and histories.
