After a fantastic opening in Tunis, The International Center for Transitional Justice, the University of Birmingham, and Museum Lab warmly welcome you to visit the ongoing exhibition, “Voices of Memory.”  The interactive art exhibit will travel to 3 additional locations in Tunisia:

Kef, October 20-27

Sfax, November 24-December 2

Redeyef, December 15-22

“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. 

For more information, visit the website or interact with us on the "Voices of Memory"  Facebook page (in French and Arabic). 

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.
