Abstract / Summary

On the 50th anniversary of the Aberfan disaster - the conference examined the importance of remembering such events, including what the media remembers and what is, or should not be, forgotten - raising the question as to why events like this are often 'forgotten' until another 'significant' anniversary (like this one) comes around.

In 2006, working with American artist Shimon Attie I was commissioned by BBC Wales to produce a film charting the artist's intervention in the village in the lead up to the 40th anniversary of the disaster at Aberfan. the paper explores my working methodologies, practical process and delivered outcomes.
