on spendig time with women (Thoko)

One of the most difficult task for this project, is about time… Women are not located at just one place; the goal is to collect as many testimonies as possbile, and to embroider them will take time. The thing is they dont have all the time I would need to, they have families, jobs, and they have to go to the place where we will gather to embroider. The idea is to make a workshop about memory, and then about embroidering, and it will take at least three days, the issue is that what la Casa de la mujer ( house of women, the NGO I will work with) they say is very difficult for them to give three days on an activity…
So, that is something to solve out in this project…
I have already embroider with one women and it took me about a complete day to give her the chance to speak out her pain, and to help her with her drawing, now, it will be very difficult, which is part of the magic… I think!
If i could I would stay as much time as possible, but one of my goals is really to make a big statement on historical memory, gathering as much women as possible…

Thoko, thanks for your reflections, I really appreciate them!
