The Bangladeshi Historical Memory Project is an interactive visual and narrative based digital archive & political theater project documenting the history & resilience of Bangladeshi people. Combining historical and contemporary media, this project explores art, literature, culture, history, and revolution.
The Bangladeshi Historical Memory Project is a collaborative people’s history of a region of 160 million stories, and over 6 million migrants all over the world; a history realized through a participatory model using our stories as tools for liberation.
This is a collaborative project that is seeking innovative Bangladeshi folks across the diaspora who are seeking to work in Bangladeshi community to design a political theater and digital archive collective. We're looking for Bangladeshi artists, creators, writers, visionaries and changemakers. Are you a graphic designer? Singer? Documentarian? Painter? Actress? We'd love to collaborate with you!
This project is directed by Sharmin Hossain, a recipient of the 2015 Open Society Youth Exchange Fellowship.
