Song for the Beloved

Honor Ford Smith, Anique J. Jordan, Hannah Town Cultural Group, Camille Turner, and Kara Springer independently and collectively create and research around memory, the body, and sites of protest.

Song for the Beloved is an interactive performance honoring those who have died from urban violence in Kingston, Jamaica linking these experiences to other forms of violence in communities around the world. Through visual arts and performance, participants negotiate contested memories across differences as an act of re-creating and repairing the past in the present.
