Collective Memory: Workshop for co-exploring local culture

What forms the “memory of the city” is not a public record, but rather a collective memory developed in the course of life. In urban cities today, however, life has become individualised and generational divides are readily apparent. This is further exacerbated in a society under the threat of COVID-19.

In this series of workshop, we will discuss how to transform personal memory materials into local and collective memories, and how to create dialogue and communication between old and new communities through experience.
