The Space To Come - Bring Us To Feel Events

Bring Me to Heal Reasoning

In a special live interdisciplinary conversation, or “reasoning” as referred to in Rastafari culture, the artist, Amartey Golding, a historian and therapist/healer will explore the under-examined area of the emotional legacy and inherited trauma of white Britain and how we might begin to heal as a nation. The audience and the artist will have a chance to more deeply explore the themes that underpin this exhibition.


Artist Amartey Golding in conversation with Maya Lasker-Wallfisch and Professor Graham Dawson (Professor of Historical Cultural Studies & Director, Centre for Memory, Narrative and Histories, University of Brighton):

Maya Lasker-Wallfisch is a psychoanalytic psychotherapist, author and educator, with a particular interest in transgenerational trauma. She works between London and Berlin. Maya’s interest in trauma and the issues arising from trans-generational trauma have their origins in her experience of being a second generation Holocaust survivor. Maya has an interest in working with people whose lives have been impacted by the Holocaust and other displacement trauma. In her memoirs named Letter to Breslau, Maya offers a unique exploration of the impact of the Holocaust on three generations of her family. She is committed to the facilitation of dialogues between second generation descendants of perpetrators and 'survivors and is currently writing her second book to be published in 2022.

Professor Graham Dawson is the University of Brighton's professor in Historical Cultural Studies, with seminal publications on the cultural memory of war and conflict. He is Director of the university's Centre for Memory, Narrative and Histories. His research is interdisciplinary, drawing on cultural studies, history, literature, cultural geography and psychoanalysis. It investigates the inter-relations between memory, narrative, lived experience and identity, with a particular interest in the personal memories and subjectivities produced in oral histories/life stories and the cultural and political ramifications of their relation to public and national representations of the past and the future. Dawson's main focus is on the politics of memory and ‘post-conflict’ culture in the Irish peace process, and legacies of the Northern Irish Troubles in Ireland and Britain. His current interests lie in the cultural politics and temporal dynamics of ‘dealing with the past’ within conflict transformation, involving questions of memory and silence; subjectivity, identity and emotion; representation and acknowledgement; imaginative geography and historical justice.

Bring Us To Feel are restorative events designed by Gaylene Gould of The Space to Come which will help us experience and explore our feelings, emotional responses and understanding of generational trauma in Britain and the possibility of collective rituals of healing.

Bring Us to Feel has been designed by Gaylene Gould and produced by Zaynab Bunsie.
