Anique Jordan and Camille Turner in conversation reflecting on their work, the role of art as activisim, absence and erasure of Black history in Canada and the country's "national amnesia" (Turner). Both artists speak about their relationships to family, Trinidad (Jordan) and Jamaica (Turner), and engaging with history, the archive and performance. Jordan (in Trinidad) shares her current research into, and participation in, Carnival while Turner addresses her ongoing creative research on the history of slavery in Canada.
