Event Details


Exhibition and associated activities:Arpilleras de la resistencia política Chilena / Arpilleras of Chilean political resistance
Description: The Office of Human Rights and Security of Recife Council invited the exhibition, that had been previously displayed at the Memorial of Political Resistance in Sao Paulo, to be exhibited in their Cultural centre and so be available to the general public. As part of the exhibition programme, workshops were scheduled in deprived rural communities targeted at women being trained as artisans in the hope that it would improve their skills and thus their income generation opportunities.
