Land and Memory – a collection of articles by Katherine Boyer, Tiffany Creyeke, Umer Farooq, Braden Gray, Mary Mattingly and Philip Vandermey

Memory is something that we hold, we carry it forward. Sometimes memory is heavy. What is the relationship between memory and the land? What collective memory is contained in the land, in what we build, and in a sense of belonging that one feels?

From the horizon to the cartesian grid, this collection of articles reveals differing connections to place. Some with hopes for a new city. Others with new attempts to represent, to be heard. How is progress defined and how might planning better-respond to cultural identifiers?

Land and Memory was shaped by guest curators: Jessie Andjelic, Iman Bukhari and Tiffany Shaw-Collinge who extended an invitation to the writers. Editorial support came from: Christina Amaral Kim, Emily Cargan, Kwangyul Choi, Sergio Veyzaga, and co-chairs: amery Calvelli and Alicia Ta. A special thank you to Angat Desai and Kim Hoang for their work on the installation design.

This project was supported in part by the Canada Council for the Arts,  as well as through ongoing support from Calgary Arts Development and the Alberta Foundation for the Arts.
