We as people are extremely good at confirming ourselves to, what is expected of us by imposed systems and thoughts. We reconstruct our personal life narratives in a way, that our stories resembles with these systems. But when and where can we be truly ourselves? To what extend is free expression accepted and how does this effect our mutual relations?

Within this workshop we are searching for a new way of telling stories. Together we are creating a space wherein we play with the boundaries of free expression within the idea of the social fabric and by the use of personal life narratives.

The embodiment of the space and our personal life narratives are being visualised within the use of textiles. Traditionally, the use of textiles is an expression of individual and collective stories. By using textiles in combination of life stories, a new way of opening up a space for voicing and documenting experiences , gets created. During the workshop we preserve the stories that history books tend to forget, express the self and raising a voice within a certain system that relies on just one story that is being told.
