MultiMemo Dissemination Conference and Joint Artistic Holocaust Commemoration Event


We are pleased to invite you to the MultiMemo Dissemination Conference and Joint Artistic Holocaust Commemoration Event

‘Echoes of Remembrance’ – A Journey through Memories. A joint artistic Holocaust commemoration event

This event is organized by CEJI – A Jewish Contribution to an Inclusive Europe, in partnership with the Jewish Museum of Belgium, as part of the European project MultiMemo – Multidirectional Memory: Remembering for Social Justice.

The MultiMemo project

The MultiMemo project proposes an intersectional approach to remembrance. Drawing from the concept of ‘multidirectional memory’, it initiates a variety of forms of active remembrance in the public spheres across several European countries.

MultiMemo’s point of departure is the tragic and murderous legacy of WWII in East Central Europe (ECE). The project focuses on sites and practices of ‘mutliple exclusion’ with respect to remembrance that are problematic or/and overlooked because the trauma of the Holocaust overlaps with other intricate social, historical or contemporary issues.

The practices of the project are based on the four principles of inclusivity, sustainability, the rescuing of memory, and epistemic justice. They are implemented through arts, academia, urbanism, activism, and policy making.

The MultiMemo dissemination conference and commemoration event

The event aims to promote and explore commemoration through a multidirectional approach to Holocaust remembrance with the intervention of professionals, academic speakers and artists.

It will be structured in two parts. Firstly, we will explore the concept of multidirectional memory and how it can be put into practice at a grassroots level through a panel discussion.

The second part of the event will be an exploration of the applied concept featuring local artists commemorating the holocaust through a multidirectional approach, thus honouring the memory of different communities bearing that suffering.

The Jewish Museum of Belgium, Brussels
