The coming together of performance, art and heritage is nothing new.However, all too often they are separated out through their own disciplinaryconcerns, so the opportunity to examine their shared values is less frequent.And whilst performance and heritage studies have explored the affectingpotential of coming together to engage with traumatic sites of memory, thereis still much more to do to consider what recent participatory art practicescan contribute to this subject (Taylor 2008). In particular, whilst performanceand heritage studies were exploring the necessity of finding shared values inprotecting and safeguarding intangible forms of practice in the first decadeof the millennium, contemporary art was similarly engaging in new formsof thinking about participation and documentary forms of history (Bishop2012; Taylor 2016). The 'participatory turn' in contemporary art seemed togamer little response from critical heritage studies, however. This chapterexplores one such project that encouraged the use of participation and performancein exploring a recent historical trauma.
