morph: Memory

Dec 10, 2018
  • 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
  • Location:

    350 West Georgia Street
    Vancouver, BC V6B 6B1

Discover the nuances of how, what, where, and why we remember.

Contributors from the Peter Wall Institute’s new book, Memory, will navigate how our memories of Vancouver and British Columbia will shape our shared future.

Memory is a collection of essays from a diverse group of contributors that capture different perspectives on the idea of memory in fields including molecular genetics, astrophysics and engineering, law, Indigenous oral histories, and the natural world.

This event is in partnership with the Vancouver Public Library and their current exhibition morph, which looks at telling and retelling, naming and renaming, demolishing and rebuilding, constructing and reconstructing how we see and experience the environment.
