Last day at Musée Bernadotte, Pau, France -THANK YOU ALL

Dear all.

Sunday is the last day for the exhibition of Desconocida Inconnue Ukjent at Musée Bernadotte, Pau.
It has been such a special experience to bring Desconocida to Pau and the Museum. I want to thank all of you for the time and focus you have brought to the project! It has been so good to be received with such care and engagement, and that from every person I have met! I can hardly believe the involvement that has been established through the effort of Anne, Regis and Lila in BonArt and their helpers, and the museum with Jean-Pierre and his staff. So many community centers, hospitals, schools, and other groups have been involved, many have been visiting the museum and embroidered labels during the exhibition period.  I have understood from conversations with Anne that workshops have been arranged in the exhibition up til this last week.

Thank you all!!

The beautiful catalog, so greatly designed by Benjamin Lahitte, was stitched together with the same enthusiasm and collaboration in a sewing workshop ("La Défil'rit") at the Berlioz Youth and Community Center in Pau, run by Françoise Paugam. 1200 catalogs were made this way! I am so proud to share the catalog with people that have been involved in the project in other countries and most importantly send it to Marisela Ortiz and people in Ciudad Juarez. 

It was also a very good experience to come back to Pau with the choreographer and dancer Runa Rebne to do the performance Ukjent and be met with the interest from so many.

I thank you all for your kindness, enthusiasm and care. Your effort and participation have added hundreds of new voices to the unison call against murder and abuse of women. All the best Lise
