May 22nd, 2019 – Arpillera Making

Today the youth had the opportunity to create arpilleras, a Chilean form of tapestry making where the youth sewed a story into cloth. Many of the youth expressed what they want to do in the future with their arpillera. This was incredible to see as this was something the project has aimed to work toward: providing a space where the youth can see a future for themselves outside the world of trafficking. The youth had an incredible time and made some beautiful pieces of art. We extend our deepest gratitude to Isabel of Neruda Arts for leading us through this incredible workshop.
