Face the Fear (project is in progress)

Inclusion as a philosophy and social movement developed in the nineties of the last century. It is based on the advocacy and self-representation of the human rights of persons who are different. Inclusion means involvement and acceptance, and emphasizes the fact that everyone, regardless of diversity, belongs to society and in its own way contributes to its development.

Transitions 

This project consider multiple aspects of post-conflict society and challenges and successes at varying stages of transitional justice, from across the centuries to recently established zones of fragile peace. It will foster a discussion of varied definitions of otherness and the difficulties these multi-faceted communities face. By sharing diverse post-conflict experiences, Transitions will foster the development of new ideas and solidarity among fellow global citizens. The project was developed in cooperation with Art Works Projects Chicago, Post-Conflict Research Center (PCRC) and WARM Foundation

My Body: A War Zone

In the wake of the conflict, the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia declared the use of ‘systematic rape’ and ‘sexual enslavement’ as a crime against humanity. The decision has come to represent a significant step for women’s human rights and in defining the field of international humanitarian law. In response, the UN’s Special Representative on Sexual Violence in Conflict praised the women that testified within the landmark case for ‘breaking what is called history’s greatest silence’.
