Work in progress of Ephemeral Lines (2020), by Elmira and Ramona Zadissa
As part of Heritage Open Day weekend and the celebration of Ephemeral Lines where you can drop-in, learn more about the project, add your story or participate in one of the pre-recorded workshops led by Elmira and Ramona Zadissa at social distanced work stations, all materials provided.
For Ephemeral Lines, the Zadissa sisters have asked people if the architecture, cultural provision and infrastructure of where they live reflects who they are and who they feel connected to. At a time of lock-down due to a pandemic, the project examines the importance of human connections and sharing experiences. To collect these voices, Ramona and Elmira developed a digital platform for people to share their stories and interact with each-other, and the artists, during the isolation period and beyond.
Alongside the platform Elmira and Ramona have worked with the African Diaspora Foundation, Q:alliance and Living Archive MK telling their story of experiences from social distancing and self-isolation and if conveying these stories can be a means to bring communities closer.
