Pensamientos, posibilidades y procesos para esclarecer la verdad

Prof. Claire Taylor of the University of Liverpool hosts this unique online gathering of Colombian exiles, artists, activists, and researchers, together with the UK representative of the Colombian Truth Commission, for an inspiring discussion on the life-affirming power of culture for connection with others, clarification of truths, and communication of memory. Panellists approach these themes from the diverse standpoints of their personal and professional practice, locating the role of culture in social processes as important as peace-building after decades of conflict, within and beyond Colombia.

Speakers explain how they define and combine culture, social action, and research, offering personal insights into three key concepts associated as much with their own work as with the Colombian Truth Commission, namely exile, recognition, and truth. Together, the panel explores the function of art and culture in capturing memory; in telling and hearing life stories; representing victims; and facilitating public reconocimiento de la verdad or recognition of truth. 

Nombrar lo Innombrable: speaking the unspeakable
Ignacio Piedrahíta conversa con la Comisionada Lucía González

Colombian writer Ignacio Piedrahíta, talks with Colombian Truth Commissioner Lucía González and an online audience, about the power of the creative and literary arts to communicate truths, which otherwise are virtually impossible to fully articulate, or indeed to hear and process; thus, all cultural practice can have a role to play in increasing a society’s capacity to deal with truth.
