2021 Conference Image

This work is based on archival images from the 1932 Great Abaco Hurricane which devastated Abaco and Green Turtle Cay. The artist, Leanne Russell, is an Abaconian descended from settlers, who still lives on the tiny island (Green Turtle Cay) where her forefathers settled. She is active in the community and lived though Dorian on Green Turtle Cay and has led the restoration efforts. The artist overlaid contemporary images post-Dorian with historical images to speak to the recurring trauma. Working on them gave her hope that the community could rebuild as it had before.

Call for Proposals Cultivating Resilience in Museums and Cultural Heritage Sites

MAC asks its members and audiences from the Caribbean, Caribbean-interest and Caribbean diaspora regions, institutions and educational programs to consider what museum and cultural work looks like in an age where we are focused on how to survive, while we must also consider how to thrive.
