Tree of Memories Social Museology Workshop on Biographical Objects
Pedro Pereira Leite – MED – Education and Diversity Museum
Based on the experience of social museology developed in the project “Trees of Memories” in Mozambique and the activities of education for the development of NGDO “Life”, we propose a moment of encounter on the diversity of knowledge and of the actions in the world and a space for recognition of the ecology of knowledge in the positioning of each participant to promote cognitive justice.
From a ciranda of memory and through the method of the sociodrama, we propose a work on the reification of memory and production of social innovation from the biographical experiences of the participants
The session seeks to facilitate the creation of a moment of learning from the experiences of participants’ life histories. From the look of self and the other are summoned experiences of self weaving group memories through the recognition of diversity in the construction of narratives. The recognition of difference is a pretext to work on the different processes that are present in the group.
Each group member is invited to recognize difference as an exercise in self-recognition and in their role in the group. At the end of the work, the group is recognized as a set of actors with capacity for action and transformation, capable of recognizing and resolving their conflicts.
