Green Commemorations. Action through Art

An outdoor event presenting creative and participatory practices of transmitting the memory of places of difficult heritage in green space.

KL Plaszow

Program

KL Plaszow’s layers of history, the indistinct boundaries of the land, the multitude of claimants to its memory and its current role as a parks and recreations space, make it a prime example of what the International Council of Museums (ICOM) calls a contested site.

The conflicting perspectives on the nature of the site and its history represent an opportunity for meaningful conversation, education, and growth; by engaging groups with a multitude of perspectives through a process of interpreting a site and mutually planning for its future.

Since its founding in 2017 one of FestivALT’s core missions is to offer a neutral platform for people of good faith to discuss these differences. In fulfilling this mandate we have initiated a number of innovative projects and best practices aimed at raising awareness about the site’s complicated history as well as creating a space for dialogue among diverse stakeholders.

That is why we are proud to co-organize "Green Commemorations: Action through Art", a two day outdoor event promoting alternative and artistic strategies for the transmission of memory in green spaces. We are invigorated to demonstrate a practice-based culture of remembrance that harnesses innovative strategies of cooperation and a multidisciplinary approach to heritage and community building; seamlessly integrating Civic Arts, Activism and Urbanism.
