A textile created by some of the woman from Badalona
Women from different backgrounds, whether cultural, religious, national or generational, represent their parallels and contrasts in textile arts. Every woman comes from Badalona's Sant Roc neighbourhood and every woman has worked with the basic material of 'sackcloth'—a simple, everyday substance. This common ground allows for immediate comparison in the expression of their textiles.
The exhibition includes a few parallel discussions (in Catalan), in which the women will discuss issues of immigration, institutions, education, and more: (1) February 19th at 7.30pm “Un taller pot canviar la societat?” (Can a workshop change society?) and (2) February 26th at 7.30pm “Una aposta de l’Ateneu Sant Roc per una societat més igualitària” (The Ateneu Sant Roc takes a bet on a more equal society).
Inauguration on Thursday, February 18th at 7.30pm
