Maison des Esclaves, Africa's first World Heritage Site, is re-opening with revitalized buildings and exhibitions. Participants will share the project, including the development of new content balanced with the vital nature of a site of memory and the ways in which contemporary artists contribute to dialogue about the past, helping to create new futures.

This event is part of the Conscience Matters Webinar Series, which brings together members, Coalition staff and special guests to probe pressing issues facing Sites of Conscience today and showcase innovative and effective strategies to help members energize their audiences and play a leading role in our global movement for memory.

Since the outbreak of the armed conflict in Ethiopia in November 2020, millions of people have been internally displaced in Tigray and tens of thousands have crossed the border into neighbouring countries. The war, which pits forces aligned with Ethiopia’s federal government against those affiliated with Tigray’s regional government led by the Tigray People’s Liberation Front, has gone largely underreported, despite accusations of war crimes and crimes against humanity by international organization such as Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch.

From extrajudicial executions, mass arrests and acts of sexual violence to widespread pillage and looting, Tigrayans are being targeted in a campaign of ethnic cleansing. The war in Ukraine will further exacerbate humanitarian crisis as food insecurity worsen in the Horn of Africa.

The Montreal Institute of Genocide and Human Rights Studies (Concordia University), Security and Justice for Tigrayans Canada (SJT Canada) and World Beyond War are hosting a virtual discussion to shine light on the ongoing crisis occurring in Tigray.

The event will be livestreamed on MIGS' Facebook and YouTube pages. A direct link will be sent to attendees a few days in advance.
