Detention centres in Chile under Pinochet: free arpillera workshop and exhibition.

 

The exhibition of patchwork “arpilleras” and the  Arpillera  Workshop (Free)*, facilitated by Maria Alicia Salinas Farfan, will take place on Wednesday 5th September from 1.00-3.30pm at The Millennium Gallery (Please, register for the workshop) The arpilleras will be on display throughout the day.
