The archive cannot be decolonised - it is too tangled up with imperialism. But the archive must be decolonised. We must control our own memory - past, present and future.
What does the Pan-African archive look like? Sound Like? Feel like? Where does it begin and where are its limits? We are creating something beautiful. We are changing our narrative. History is healing.
When we face the past we understand the present. When we understand the present we shape our future.
We sample the archive, co-creating spaces that shape our future.
We sustain and share our collective memory; stimulating personal and collective transformations. To do this we consider:
What is the function of the memory? What is its context? How best can we sustain it?
