The Archive of Memory, a project by AHDA 2015 alumna Hasini Haputhanthri, launched this past February.  The project was reviewed by The Sunday Times in Sri Lanka.

The Archive of Memory is a digital platform created to serve the critical discourse on historical dialogue in Sri Lanka. This digital space hopes to bring together researchers, organizations, journalists, students and anyone with an open and questioning mind interested in issues relating to memorialization and the post-war situation in Sri Lanka.

It is an attempt to catalogue the various efforts of memorialisation in Sri Lanka and explore the various narratives related to the country’s history of violence and loss. It also aims to address the impact that different historical narratives have had on the social, political and cultural structures of Sri Lanka. The myriad of resource material, photographs and maps you will find here are a result of the ongoing collective effort of practitioners specializing in the field of memory.
