Storytelling is a powerful tool for healing and assertion. Women tell stories as a means of gathering parts of themselves back to one piece. Hilway (Freedom) is a process of psycho-social support, where women exercise their own sense of freedom navigating in a tight small crowded prison space through stories of objects. Women recreated a new self with new colors to light up their life in the darkest times.
The prison as a creative space becomes alive with the living narratives of human stories through objects, a space of compassion with overflowing bodies sharing the politics of tolerance, compassion and love.
