Collaborative Art Project: Create a Community of Memory

July 8 @ 10:00 am - July 29 @ 11:30 am


Collaborative Art Project: Create a Community of Memory

10am PST/1pm EST

Soraya Sarah Nazarian Program in Fine Arts

Write and record your pandemic-era memories with an award-winning writer and listen as they become a new musical piece in community.

Be a part of a collaborative art project that commemorates the pandemic era. In this workshop, work with award-winning writer and director Diana Wyenn to craft and record your memories of the past 15 months. Composer Alejandro Cohen (dublab) will then create original scoring for the words and recorded memories. As we conclude this year and prepare for the Jewish new year, create a time capsule of memories, impressions, and moments of the past 15 months to share with your own community. The workshop is open to people of all ages and backgrounds that want to both offer and hold these memories.

The third session is a listening party for participants and their communities, and each participant will receive the finished recording of their unique memory. The recordings will also be made available on the AJU website as a virtual experience.

This collaborative project was created as part of Reciprocity: LA Artist Retreat, a program of American Jewish University’s Institute for Jewish Creativity, in partnership with Asylum Arts. The Collaborative Projects were made possible by The Gilbert Foundation.
