Difficult Histories Database

How often do you stop and reflect on where you’re standing, what difficult historical significance the space may have, or what weight its name may carry? The Difficult Histories Database (DHD) challenges us to question and look closer at the spaces we occupy and consider the impacts of the past on where we exist today. Sydney Wreaks (BFA 2020), Master of Art in Art Education student at NSCAD University, has partnered with Lucy Boyd, History and Early Modern Studies student at University of King’s College, to populate the DHD, an initiative part of the Counter Memory Activism interdisciplinary research-creation project.
