Generational Return: in conversation with Ayla Olya Dmyterko

Ayla Olya Dmyterko Milda Valiulytė Julija Šilytė

This conversation explores (diasporic) Eastern European identity and how it is stabilised and/or destabilised through cultural practises. Dmyterko shares stories about her family’s migration from the bottom of the Carpathians through the Glasgow Ports and to the Canadian prairies. She also expands on her artistic practice as a generational return. Thinking through different types of knowledge, we talked about the issues of anxiety related to displacement, folkloric healing and passing on confidence in artistic expression.

Collective Dreaming is a three-part screening and research programme that weaves together Scottish, Ukrainian and Lithuanian moving images and thoughts in search of connection and collective liberation curated by Julija Šilytė & Milda Valiulytė.
