Description

In 2020, using the framework of memorisalition process with exiled communities, the Colombian Truth Commission (CTC) in the UK/Ireland and Conflict Textiles hosted workshops using the language of textiles. In 2021, building on this process, and extending the partnership to include Transitional Justice Institute, Ulster University a series of three workshops Con-textualizando la memoria / Contextualising memory were facilitated as part of the Commission support spaces in the UK and Ireland.
