PUBLIC PROGRAMS

Art and Remembrance intermittently offers public programs on the art and story of Esther Nisenthal Krinitz, in the form of book talks and presentations, and–more broadly–on the intersection of art, memory, healing, and social justice.

In the last few years, Art and Remembrance has offered lectures and panel discussions on “The Perils of ‘Othering’,” “Art, Memory, and Healing,” and “Arpilleras: Fabric Art of Memory and Protest.” We have also offered workshops for teachers and art therapists on various forms of fabric story art. We have partnered in these programs with the Museum at Strathmore (North Bethesda, Maryland), Facing History and Ourselves (Boston, MA), the George Washington University Art Therapy Department (Alexandria, VA), and the Center for Human Rights and Humanitarian Law, Washington College of Law, American University (Washington, DC).
