How Do You Want to Be Remembered?
November 24, 10:30 am - 12:00 pmFree
In this workshop at Liverpol Central Library, consider the way that people are remembered after their deaths. Together, generate ideas for new ways to design a family tree that pays attention to the identities of the family members rather than the two years which bookend their existence. Thomas Hardy and the concept of posthumous (after death) identity will help us to discuss which aspects of identity are most important to us. Having read Hardy’s famous poem ‘Afterwards’ (in which he conjectures what people will say about him once he’s dead), you’ll get the opportunity to re-write the poem imagining what you’d like friends to say about you once you’ve gone.
Have the chance to think about your own identity, how people have mattered to your life, and the intended effects you hope to have had on others’ lives.
This event is suitable for ages 14+ with an interest in memory, poetry, identity or family history.
In partnership withDr. Catherine Charlwood, Liverpool Records Office, Liverpool Central Library
