The International Center for Transitional Justice, the University of Birmingham, and Museum Lab have the pleasure to warmly welcome you to the opening of the “Voices of Memory” exhibition on Saturday, 22 September, at 2 p.m, at the Club Tahar Hadded, Tunis. 

“Voices of Memory” presents a unique museographic experience that incorporates the testimonies of nine Tunisian women—some, victims of the dictatorship and others, newly engaged in activism—united by their belief in the power of storytelling as a vehicle for change. A place of living history, “Voices of Memory” explores Tunisian women’s experiences of repression through “El Koffa,” the traditional Tunisian basket used to bring food to prisoners.

This exhibition is made possible by the generous support of the Government of Canada, the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, and the University of Birmingham and the Economic and Social Research Council’s Impact Acceleration Account.
