Permanent rotating exhibition:Conflict Textiles: Magee Campus Library, Ulster University - Mujeres Disruptivas
Description: "Mujeres Disruptivas / Disruptive Women" is the ninth installation of textiles within the permanent rotating exhibition Conflict Textiles collection: Magee Campus Library, Ulster University. It marks the 15th anniversary of Conflict Textiles inaugural exhibition The Politics of Chilean Arpilleras (2008).
