REMEMBER ME is both a living poem and a visual benediction to those so often overlooked, dismissed, or forgotten in our communities. Inspired by the power of poetic connections, REMEMBER ME is a metaphor for our unbroken bloodline of human resilience and survival. Vermillion presents selections from a growing archive of collaborative, multimedia works collected for more than 10 years from various local communities including incarcerated women, homeless women, women of color, differently-abled women, women surviving mental illness, teenaged women, and children.
