Visit to Juarez, October 18th - 20th

It has been quiet on the blog for a while, but the project and people's involvement are just as strong. Two new groups in US are involved embroidering and another one in Canada. There will soon be a conversation around the project on a French cultural website; www.artrealite.com. I will attach a link to the site when it is up.

I am also working on expanding the project to a subproject involving students at middel- and high schools. Starting with Norwegian students, but hoping to include students in other parts of the world as well. Please let me know if you are interested in being part of this, and I will send out more information. More will come on this blog as well when it is ready.

A book is also in planning. I would like the book to hold some of the same qualities I find the wall installation to have, and want it to hold many voices. I would like to invite participants in the project to write feedback and thoughts they may have. Please send this to me by email. I will also soon send out to the group leaders for the workshops a request to include photoes, you have sent me, in the book.

Next week I am going to Juarez to meet with the mothers' supportgroup, some of the familymembers and others with knowledge on the situation. While I am in Juarez I will try to have a daily note on this blog. I look forward to these meetings and to see Juarez and understand more of the situation, specially how it is now.

Until later

best Lise
