Gilbert Lessons and Legacies
Gilbert, Lessons and Legacies works towards constructively commemorating the 30th Anniversary of Hurricane Gilbert in the Caribbean, by collating and displaying archive material, music, photographs, personal testimonials and artists responses relating to Hurricane Gilbert. This project aims to remember the event and to celebrate Caribbean resilience but will also ask: What can we learn from Hurricane Gilbert? If it were to happen today would we do anything different? Can we use Hurricane Gilbert to talk about the environment, our social and economic growth, our relationship to international aid?
