Inclusive Memory for Peace in Medellín

Nathan Ober will draw from his personal interests in art, technology, music and astrophysics to engage with participants around inclusive memory for peace. As a team, they will explore the ways in which artists can help facilitate change within social and political processes. His exchange takes place at a moment when Colombia is striving for peace and communities that have been victims of the conflict are looking for ways to start over, forgive their victimizers, and have the atrocities acknowledged.
