The Fabric of Memory
Free Workshop this Wednesday
"The Fabric of Memory"
Wednesday, November 18
6:00-7:00pm REGISTER HERE Fabrics can contain tremendous meaning. Within their threads, they can hold stories both told and untold, and they can literally wrap us in story and memory. Join special guest Cicely Carew, along with Jukebox creator Elisa Hamilton, for a workshop devoted to accessing memories, sharing stories, choosing what to bring with us into the future, and deciding what to leave behind. Participants are invited to bring an article of clothing or other fabric that holds memory for them to the workshop. We hope you'll join us!
About Cicely Carew
We're thrilled to have special guest Cicely Carew joining us as co-host for "The Fabric of Memory"!
Cicely Carewspent her formative years in Los Angeles surrounded by artists, writers, sculptors, photographers, and teachers. She moved to Boston for her undergraduate degree at MassArt, and after stints in Mexico and on the West Coast, returned for her MFA at Lesley Art + Design in Cambridge, MA. Exuberant in its colorful forms, Cicely's work is, in her words, about "about radical joy and liberation." Cicely has received several honors and grants over the years, such as the Cambridge Art Association's Emerging Artist's Exhibition award, the Sustainable Arts Foundation award, Strauch-Mosse Merit Scholarship Award, and a Cambridge Arts Council grant. Carew's work is in private, corporate, and University collections. She currently lives in Cambridge, MA, with her son.
Commissioned for theCambridge Foundry through the City of Cambridge percent-for-art program by theCambridge Arts Council, Jukebox will be a center point for gathering, listening, and sharing our stories. This project reimagines the traditional jukebox as a machine that plays stories rather than music. Jukebox is teaming up with community partner organization The Loop Labto develop 100 community audio stories for the jukebox. Learn more about the project atwww.FoundryJukebox.org.
