Focus: Personal stories related to human rights and GBV
Size: 40+ and growing
Description: Collection of story cloths done within a trauma therapy context. Cloth artists have given permission for the public to view their stories, and they advocate for bringing issues such as the use of sexual violence in conflict, sex trafficking, other forms of violence against women and families, issues of displacement, and experiences of war into public knowledge in order to stop and prevent violence against women. Common Threads Project trains local mental health professionals in using story cloth making, along with psychoeducation, art therapy, and body/mind work to treat groups of survivors.
