Remembrance

2016
The project ”Remembrance” is dedicated to a little known history about Yugoslavian prisoners of World War II in Norway, the Partisan resistant movement in Northern Norway and one of the greatest catastrophes in Norwegian history – the ”Burning down” of Finnmark in 1944 – 1945.

CARIN

2017
CARIN is one of the case studies and partner with the research project Cit-egration. Sustainable diverse cities: Innovation in Integration by UiT, whose main objective is to produce new applicable knowledge on innovative integration activities that help us to live with differences, enhance integrative interaction and develop just cities. The embroidery workshop is promoting integration through informal discussions during collaborative art-creation. With embroidery workshops, I am activating spaces for enabling social interactions between strangers. My goal is to define the intersection between positive social transformation and art.
