Conectando Hilos de la Justicia (Connecting Threads of Justice)

To support the new phase of our project with an artistic Encuentro in San Antonio, November 2019 between women of Fuerza Unida and the textile artists from Jolom Mayaetik, our partners in Chiapas, Mexico. Together, we will recap the richness of the ten years’ transnational exchange of traditional knowledge and artistic crafts ranging from textiles and sewing technology to the use of traditional medicine, massage and food to improve women’s health. A booklet will gather the experiences of our partnership through textile art work and the use of alternative medicine to benefit our health and the environment.
