Description

Embroidering for Peace and Memory is an annual event that takes place in March at UNF to commemorate Women’s History Month. UNF students, faculty and staff from across campus gather to embroider on pieces of white cloth messages of peace and the stories of people around the world who have endured the violation of their rights. Approximately 200 pieces of embroidery have been produced in this project so far and will be put into a digital archive that will make the embroidery available online. The archive will include digital images, notes about the personal stories behind the embroidery, and metadata that will make the materials searchable and sortable by predefined categories. The student collaborators will produce archival photographs of the embroidery, create written material about the pieces based on discussions with Professor López and project participants, develop curatorial categories for organizing the material, prepare the corresponding metadata, and design and construct the website.

Comments

We will need a computer/projector to display the digital archive.
