Forum:I Foro de Arpilleras de Cataluña: Nuestras historias hacen la Historia /First Forum of Arpilleras in Catalonia: Our stories make our History.
Description: In 2008, the exhibition "The politics of Chilean Arpilleras" was exhibited in the Centre for Equality of Women and Men, Barcelona, Spain. The Forum, set up in 2011 to mark the third anniversary of the exhibition, aimed to connect different initiatives that were seeded through the exhibition. The platform, which emerged from the forum, facilitated a dialogue and learning space for all the arpilleras projects.
