Memory Festival: Creating and exploring collective memory in Vancouver

From Tuesday 13 November to Sunday 18 November, visit the Vancouver Memory Festival at the Roundhouse Community Centre, an exhibition and a series of community cultural events that focus on public and private memory.

These events, partially sponsored by the Vancouver Park Board, explore the questions of remembering, forgetting, and the nature of memory itself.
