Queering Memory
into Space (LGBTQAI+)

 “Queer(ing) Memory Into Space” was the first thematic forum of the Conversation Series of Migration Memory Encounters project (MME) took place on Nov 3rd 2018 (12-4 pm) at Garaget in Malmö, Sweden.

The aim was creating a platform for a dynamic, interactive, inclusive, diverse and multiple panel discussions/talks about queer (LGBTQIA) as well as to queer space for everyone to talk.

Migration Memory Encounters project (MME) was formed in 2017 to create a platform for the various art forms from migrant artists to showcase their work and begin a vital conversation with the Swedish society. At the beginning of the project, a dialogue was started on the forgotten artists who have seemingly been lost and those who have kept their work aside to pursue putting their lives back in order some continue working on new materials while some are not quite sure if to continue or not.

The second track aims in creating a thematic public discussion forum with arrangements on important political and social topics but based on literature, art, film, and activism. A series of conversations with a mix of authors, artists and activists. The purpose of which is to explore interesting intersections about identity, power, creativity, gender, sexuality, diaspora and ethnicity in the face of the audience.
