Exhibition and associated activities:Rebeldes / Rebels - FITE Festival (Festival Internacional de Textiles Extra Ordinarios)
Description: The exhibition is a follow up to the Rebelles exhibiton, as part of the FITE 2016 - International Festival of Extraordinary Textiles (FITE) in France in 2016. It explores different expressions of rebels in the world. Rebels who seek freedom, a just order, equality for all people and who practice resistance to oppression, based on nonviolence.

The exhibition focuses on societal projects that break with what is self-evident, rejecting the appearance of fatality and false evidences, "the inventors of new worlds" (Leyla Dakhli). It promotes social projects that break with "poverty, lack, suffering, sexism and all the other forms of discrimination" with which freedom has no meaning. (Nelson Mandela).
