Border Stories Athens


Afghan, Syrian and Kurdish women painting and sowing their borders in a container in a refugeecamp on the docks in the Elefsinian Gulf. 30 degrees inside, 40 degrees outside. The women tell about memories from their Homeland, about hope for the future, about their hopeless situation. They used to work as a teacher, as a policewoman, at a beauty Salón. The workshop gives them a break and a place to talk. Their stories and their border pieces will travel with Border Threads back to Norway. As a gift they get 3 meter of textile to make clothes for themselves and their children.
