An itinerant studio
Through 2025, you will encounter Studio Herinner (which translates to Studio Remember) throughout Brabant (and perhaps beyond). With Studio Herinner, we are traveling the province to find out what “remembering” and “remembrance” mean to Brabanders today and what it means to you. We are looking for your stories, thoughts, opinions and the questions you have.
What does remembering mean to you?
That’s the question Studio Herinner is asking both online and physically. We are going to explore this question over the next few years by talking about it. In all kinds of ways, in all kinds of places and with as many people as possible. We think that will produce impressive moments, encountering problems and experiencing special encounters. Are or do you know someone with a special story or event? Are you curious about Studio Herinner and the program of Brabant Herinnert? Or do you think the Studio should visit you or your club? Then email email@example.com.
At the end of Studio Herinner’s journey, all those histories, thoughts and conversations tell a story of Brabant that remembers. A little bit of every man for himself and a little bit of all of us.
Studio Herinner is the communication platform of Brabant Herinnert. In it we work, in dialogue with partners, stakeholders and especially the public, on the question of remembering. We want to experience the process together and share it together. Studio Herinner is as much an idea as an actual place; symbolic of the work and collaboration that the new commemoration and remembering calls for. Studio Herinner gives context to personal stories and using those stories to put together an answer to the question: what is this remembering for you? And what can remembering World War II mean, in view of the present? It is a path to your own story. We explore further around the stories; how we now remember the past and how retrieving the memory itself, the event of the time, is an active act. And what you want and can do with it afterwards. Because to keep the memory of, and commemoration of, World War II alive, we must find, name and live relevance and urgency in the here and now. Especially since we live with the testimonies of a European war in our backyard.
