Exhibition and associated activities:Poesie des Nähens / The Poetry of Stitching
Description: This exhibition, commissioned by PAKT e.V., incorporates textiles which focus on the three themes within the title: resistance, memory and hope. A working group of 8 people has begun preparations, with its first meeting held on 22nd May 2019. The following institutions will participate and collaborate:
Eine Welt Forum Freiburg
Arnold Bergstraesser Institut
Städtische Museen Freiburg Museum Natur und Mensch
Deutsch-Afghanische Initiative e.V. (DAI)

More organisations and self organized migrant groups are interested and will join the working group during the preparatory stages over the coming months.

When the exhibition closes in Galerie der Volkshochschule, it will be moved to a venue in Emmendingen (to be finalised) from 10th March until mid-April.

Throughout the entire exhibition period there will be a range of associated activities, such as guided tours, workshops and presentations. These will be targeted at schools and a broad range of target groups within the community. Details of these activities will be added at a later stage.
