Reconstructing a Lost Place
The spaces that we occupy are almost always saturated with meaning. But in our hustle, bustle, and pursuit of ‘progress’ we have quite frequently forgotten the deeper profundity at our feet. In this session, participants will have a chance to consider what it means to resurrect meaning in our everyday places. The example that will serve to anchor this presentation comes from Bardejov, Slovakia. Like so many other small towns in Eastern Europe, Bardejov lost touch with its Jewish past as a result of the Holocaust. By exploring the steps being taken to recover this heritage, we may be inspired to discover the invisible pasts buried just below the surface of all things.
