Judgment Day 911

2011 – Present


Judgment Day 9/11 was a multi-year project that engaged communities in dialogues about the events of September 11, 2001 and the ongoing conflicts that rippled and continue to ripple from the initial attacks. Wall-sized murals provided social tablets on which community members expressed how they were impacted by 9/11 and its aftermath. The intent of this co-creative effort was to provide an outlet for communal outpouring of raw truth, whether that truth be grief, anger, wisdom, ignorance, compassion or hope.  By sharing our stories, our feelings, our beliefs—and by reading the stories, feelings, and beliefs of others—it was my hope to foster a better understanding of our diverse cultures and to promote genuine healing.

 


An ongoing co-creative project by Nabil Mousa who invites the public to participate in a creative experience on two large ten foot high by fifty feet in length murals.  Judgement Day 911 endeavors to cut through the prejudices and misconceptions that continue to plague the post-9/11 world and challenge Americans of all ancestries, and people of all nationalities to open their hearts and their minds, and to come together, through this work, to share their experiences and emotions, to communicate, to listen, and hopefully to learn from one another.

"My intent with this piece is to invite the public to participate in a co-creative effort—to add their personal signature in a communal outpouring of raw truth, whether that truth be grief, anger, wisdom, ignorance, compassion or hope. By sharing our stories, our feelings, our beliefs—and by reading the stories, feelings, and beliefs of others—it is my hope we can foster a better understanding of our diverse cultures and promote a genuine healing."  - Nabil Mousa
