Making Marks: Australia to Afghanistan, led by artist Gali Weiss, is a participatory art exchange between 20 Australian women artists and 43 Afghan women; literacy students at the Organisation of Promoting Afghan Women’s Capabilities (OPAWC) Vocational Centre in Kabul. The custom-printed handkerchiefs provide a vehicle for the voices of Afghan women to be heard through beautifully stitched imagery and Dari and Pashto text. The group of Australian artists demonstrate their commitment to using art as a means of connection, support and social transformation.
Making Marks is part of the 2020 Human Rights Arts and Film Festival.
