memory for the future

a public humanities lab

Memory for the Future (M4F) is a year-long "studiolab" opening Fall 2022 in the Lewis Collaborative in St. Louis. M4F combines the study of representations of the interlinked histories and legacies of colonialism, slavery, and genocide with the development of curatorial skills and public educational projects. Our aim is to collaborate with local institutions and initiatives to facilitate  reparative memorial practices in and around St. Louis.
