It’s been quite for a while, but we have not been standing still.
Thematic Map Project
Since the genesis of the first iteration of Counter/Narratives back in 2018/2019 it was a wish (and still is) to facilitate different ways of archiving and viewing archives especially when it comes to lived experiences and stories that don’t even reach the institutionalized and formalised archives.
Fast forward to 2023, a lockdown and a few years later – the new team has decided to follow through on an idea that was already in the works since 2018/2019: The thematic map.
We can’t say much yet, but we will be working with new collaborators; focussing a lot on the diaspora of the ABCSSS islands (and in the longer term broader stories of migration) ánd different existing organisations across the (is)lands.
2024 will be the year more content on our thematic map will be shared
Stay tuned – because we will need your help!
A big shout out to the following organisations that have been and will continue to inspire us with their work:
Concrete Blossom, Metro54, Motormond, Caribbean Ancestry Club, Verdedig Noord, PlataformA Aruba, Stichting Rancho Aruba
We are always looking for new authors. If you’ve got an idea that will contribute to the Counter/Narratives platform and challenge our readers, let us know. Also, if you have a story to tell, but you need some assistance to put it on paper, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Email us your submission to firstname.lastname@example.org
by writing a short pitch paired with an outline. We publish Dutch and English articles.
