This project is a collective reflection on violence in Lebanon using by constructing narratives as a form of everyday life archives is an ambitious alternative for writing the unified unwritten history of Lebanon. It has the power to reveal connected stories, enhance understanding of current and previous events/crisis and reduce exacerbated conflict within and between ethnic/ sectarian groups. This egalitarian archival practice of documenting and analyzing peoples’ traumatic responses and coping mechanisms that respect multiple, convergent/divergent narratives ambitiously co-produce potential manifesto for action and change. The knowledge produced by the archival practice will not privilege certain narratives over others, rather it will offer a site of negotiation about visions of the future.
