From 9 January - 31 July
Aprilleras exploring human rights abuses.
Embracing Human Rights: Conflict Textiles’ Journey Online Exhibition
9 January – 31 July
“Embracing Human Rights: Conflict Textiles' journey” invites you to explore human rights through the tactile medium of textiles. Quilts and arpilleras from around the world, created in different decades will prompt you to reflect on the impact of, and response to, human rights violations and how can we embed a culture of human rights.
Conflict Textiles and Councils Museum Services have partnered on a number of exhibitions since 2010, with War-Torn Children, 2018 being the most recent collaboration. Roe Valley Arts and Cultural Centre is delighted to also partner on this newest exhibition.
Many thanks to exhibition curator Roberta Bacic and Breege Doherty of Conflict Textiles for helping us set up this online exhibition. You can access Conflict Textile's entire collection of arpilleras online on their beautifully curated website: Embracing Human Rights: Conflict Textiles’ Journey (https://cain.ulster.ac.uk/conflicttextiles/search-quilts2/fullevent1/?id=207)
