The Counter-Memory Activism research cluster invites artists, activists, scholars, and museologists to participate in Creative Counter-Memorializations. The event will take place in Kjipuktuk (Halifax, Nova Scotia), blending virtual and in-person presentations. We are seeking both artistic, and regular or alternative scholarly responses to difficult and contested histories.
