HOW CAN CARIBBEAN CULTURE BE USED TO SUPPORT CARIBBEAN PEOPLE?



MEMORY, RESILIENCE, HUMOUR, LOVE, SUPPORT, FAMILY, FOOD, ART, MOVEMENT, KNOWLEDGE



GILBERT: LESSONS AND LEGACIES

Hurricane Gilbert formed on this day 30 years ago, between the 8th of September and the 19th September 1988 it devastated the Caribbean. 30 years later I want to ask: what have we learnt from surviving this? In the wake of 2017 hyperactive Hurricane season and increasing awareness of the Caribbean as a front line to the effects of Global warming, lets see what the process of memorialising the natural disasters facing the Caribbean can have to helping the region collectively heal and grow; to be more resilient and better prepared.



Gilbert, Lessons and Legacies works towards constructively commemorating the 30th Anniversary of Hurricane Gilbert in the Caribbean, by collating and displaying archive material, music, photographs, personal testimonials, artistís responses etc. relating to Hurricane Gilbert (as well as previous and subsequent Hurricanes). This project aims to remember and to celebrate Caribbean resilience but also to ask: What can we learn from Hurricane Gilbert? If it were to happen today would we do anything different? Can we use Hurricane Gilbert to talk about the environment, our social and economic growth, our relationship to international aid?



HOW TO TAKE PART

A website has been created (https://globalcaribbeanmemory.com<https://globalcaribbeanmemory.com/>) and will continue to grow between September 2018- 2019 (and perhaps beyond) as more stories will be added and more contributors get involved. It will create a robust collection that can be used to help us to learn lessons from our history and our creativity.



Get in touch to add any videos, photographs, recordings, poems, stories, text to the database. We will manage and share it, but will make no profit from your contributions. Rachael Minott, project founder, curator and researcher will document the contributions into a sharable format and will update contributors as the content grows. The current plan is that in 2019 there will be an exhibition of the information and it will end with a conference (location TBC) exploring the questions asked above.



This project is a part of a longer-term project to collect stories about the Caribbean. They will be collated under the umbrella project: Global Caribbean Memory. The project aims to capture, and learn from Caribbean culture in all its complexity to support the Caribbean people, at home and in the Diasporas, to be happy, healthy and aware. To explore through our history, and our present lives how we can build a future that can be proud of. The project will use the themes of: MEMORY, RESILIENCE, HUMOUR, LOVE, SUPPORT, FAMILY, FOOD, ART, MOVEMENT, KNOWLEDGE as the foundations for recording and pursing Caribbean culture and history.



This project is in very early stages and all constructive feedback is welcome and encouraged.



Rachael Minott is a Jamaican-born artist, curator and researcher. She is an advocate for collaborative practices, working to co-curate exhibitions in a manner that challenges questions of neutrally in historical remembrance, and encourages creativity in memorialisation to generate creative solutions to contemporary problems.
