During the international campaign “16 days of activism against gender violence”, led by UN Women and in commemoration of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, the project “Colombianas” Women: a Collective Biography in alliance with the House of Memories of Conflict and Reconciliation of Cali, held an event on November 25. This event sought to generate conversations around the notion of victim, which would contribute to the exercise of collective memory.
The event was attended by some of the women protagonists of the audiovisual episodes of Colomb!anas, who participated in a panel focused on “talking about what we are doing to go beyond the denunciation, to consider new repertoires for memory and healing,” says Daniela Ortiz, Project Coordinator.
This meeting, which was held at the House of Memories of Conflict and Reconciliation, featured an exhibition of some of the audiovisual episodes of the “Colomb!anas” project. Attendees enjoyed an exhibition that showed the different facets, experiences and strategies of leadership and healing of women victims of the armed conflict and gender violence in the region. This exhibition will be open to the public from November 25 to December 11.
