Sites of Memory

Sites of Memory Foundation (SoM) organizes activities around the hidden and under-represented stories of the history of colonialism and slavery of the Netherlands and the former colonized areas. It is founded by Jennifer Tosch (cultural historian and founder of the Black Heritage Tours) and Katy Streek (theater maker and programmer). Since 2016 they have created site-specific performances with a collective of multidisciplinary artists who reframe history through music, poetry, dance, visual art and theater. The performances focus on personal stories from Black and other non-white communities that are often unknown or not found in the archives.

For Inward Outward 2023, founders → Jennifer Tosch and → Katy Streek will be present to discuss the work, with a performance by → Jörgen Gario of the artist collective of Sites of Memory.
