In this talk, Ashlee will explore the cultural significance of preserving heritage into artistic pieces, especially for ethnic minority communities. Based on her own experiences creating plays around culture within the Caribbean diaspora, she will also examine the micro and macro challenges faced when transcribing history and staying true to traditions.
