Embroidery with Middle school in Akershus, Norway

Last couple of weeks I spent at a middle school outside Oslo, embroidering with nearly 250 students. They sewed, watched videos and we discussed: the situation in Ciudad Juarez, the situation for women in Norway, and we discussed the role of art in pointing to current ongoing situations in our world. As with the other schools, something special happens when the students are deciding how to install and exhibit the labels in their school. Then another type of dialogue are happening, one that to me seems to hold another type of reflection. I am glad I have the opportunity to also work with the students in this manner and let the labels stay at the school to continue to raise awareness for a few weeks. Thanks for your contribution students!

Best Lise
