Felicity Allen in London recently emailed to me regarding Catalyst. I teach in the Education Faculty at York University in Toronto, Canada. I am planning a trip to Kigali in January 2012 for a conference around the 20th anniversary of the genocide. In addition to conference participation, I am interested in considering sites of memory to the genocide, and particularly artists work in response to or in the ongoing aftermath of social, political and cultural repair. My focus is on the pedagogical work of memory, commemoration practice and artistic response, particularly given the complexities of representing the past and bringing it into the present in productive, future-imaginative ways. I would be very much interested in learning more about your project, and with meeting activists, artists and teachers involved in the project. I plan to be in Kigali, January 5-15th 2012. Thanks so much for your reply

Hondartza Fraga is currently Leverhulme Trust artist-in-residence at the University of Hull’s Maritime History Department, Hondartza Fraga’s artworks explore our individual and collective relation to the world around us; the different ‘distances’ between ourselves and everything else: spatial, temporal, emotional, cultural and imagined.
