Iraqi Women Art and War Exhibition 'Of Ordinary Things'
This project is about telling stories from Iraqi Women, refugees and forced immigrants based in Oxfordshire. Stories are related to War times in Iraq from the 1980s until now. To document this oral history via Art and share via mobile exhibition.
We are a collective of Iraqi women artists and makers who live in Oxfordshire. Led by Iraqi Community Ambassador Rana Ibrahim. We have come together to explore our shared experience of contemporary war, displacement and forced immigration through art, sound and story – our oral histories. We hope to use treasured yet ‘ordinary objects’, photos and images – past and present, and sounds of war, sorrow, domesticity, and celebration from Iraq and the UK to work towards an exhibition in 2020… ‘Of Ordinary Things’ – the call of women’s voices against war. #iraqiwomenartwar #IWAW
