Presented by Professor Ludmila Ferrari
Over 30 people displaced by violence in Colombia reflect on their painful experiences through the design of tapestries. Participants in this prize-winning project worked at a community garden where they met and shared their stories. Then they used tapestries as a way of preserving their collective memory.
