How to Reday


Knowledge traditionally orally passed down though generations is at risk of being forgotten. This is especially true for individuals living in a diaspora. The distance from elders means we are more likely to lose these traditions and knowledge. Reday aims to preserve this knowledge in relation to my own culture. A box containing a specially printed Libyan traditional wrap dress also leads to the knowledge of how to wrap it in the form of a video. It is a piece of fabric whose pattern tells a story of my own memories and connection to the Nafusa Mountains. The preservation of this knowledge allows us to embrace who we are and not lose that part of ourselves.
