In societies affected by armed conflict, dealing with the past can prevent violence and promote justice. However collective memory is often monopolised by political elites and mirrors societal inequalities. In response, citizens devise bottom-up practices to bypass and oppose hegemonic narratives. Through informal archives and oral narratives, the project explores practices that challenge hegemonic discourses of conflict by creating spaces for dialogue and advancing demands for justice and accountability.
