Rethinking and Rebuilding Community in the Aftermath of Violence

  • Facing History and Ourselves 16 Hurd Road Brookline, MA 02445 (map)

When a group, neighborhood, or nation experiences an act of violence, it can shake the community to its very core. What brings communities together in these times of crisis? What tears them apart? Guided by Facing History’s themes of justice, legacy, and memory, we will explore the ways that communities process and respond to collective trauma. This workshop will offer opportunities for reflection, and will introduce participants to literary, artistic, and historical resources for exploring universal themes of loss and healing.
