    Stories of flights

    This edition, Abner Preis worked with co-creator Zoe D'Amaro to create an immersive storytelling experience in which women of different ages and backgrounds shared their stories. Women who had to flee at different stages of their lives. Despite the fact that their lives were disrupted by war, migration and poverty, the narratives do not dwell on suffering. Indeed, they highlight their courage, resilience and talent.
