About This Project
Memory Work is a research-based future scenario. The immersive audio track invites listeners to visualize — in the mind’s eye — a possible future environment. It is not a prediction. It is neither visionary, as in preferred, nor is it admonitory, as in dystopian. It is intended as material for meditation, stimuli for imagining collective future memory.

Informed by individual and communal memories of women’s work in Toronto (particularly through the prisms of class, gender, immigration, status, and race), along with theoretical suggestions toward a new socio-economic paradigm, Memory Work engages with ethical and moral imperatives across (past, present, and future) time.
History is written by the privileged, framed by their prejudices, and coloured by their biases. History records. Memory recalls — through mutual recounting and reconstruction of lived experience. Through memory work, collective futures can be imagined. 

We encourage you to use this as a resource, to question it and to iterate on it, generating your own future experiences, visions, vignettes, and artifacts.

Memory Work is part of the exhibition This Women’s Work, presented by At The Moment and From Later at Myseum Intersections 2020.
