Our year has truly been a journey, both literally and metaphorically. 2019 has been marked by ELLAS, the female protagonists of our stories.
We have travelled with Mrs. JULE, and of course, with our extra-special FEMMES, visiting towns and cities, fairs and festivals, without a thought for the kilometres, the weather or the venue. What more can we tell you – we know we have made you smile or blush more than once! So these are our women – mature, sensitive, wise, teasing, gentle and critical of the world around them. And of course, we love them.
In BIDAIA, we accompanied Abba on her journey in search of her promised land, jumping together and tearing down the ever-more invisible walls which separate human from human. Our journey has taken us to France, Italy, Germany…all the places where our new adventure – the Europa Creativa Mauerspringer project – led us.
Not one, but 28 women, victims and survivors of gender violence, have lent their testimonies to our intimate and alternative project MEMORIA ERAIKIZ, in conjunction with Mugarik Gabe.
This year we’ve also wanted to know what it’s like IN YOUR SHOES, with the help and resilience of Amal, one of the women who make up the population of refugees from Palestine.
So you see, we’ve travelled far, with these and other projects, and our only wish for the New Year is that you, dear audience, will continue to travel with us.
Eskerrik asko eta urte berri on.
P.S: We’re working hard to ensure that the lasting impression we leave is not our carbon footprint!
