The Boat People of Vietnam: The Voice to Vision team interviewed nine Vietnamese Boat People and working over several months created a work of art on each individual’s experience. This is the first time these works have been exhibited. The stories range from being boarded by pirates and caught in whirlpools, to being rescued by whales—all are unique.
Latin American Activists: Voice to Vision has formed an alliance with Latin American human rights activists who work as theater directors, actors, playwrights, and academics. They use these platforms to address human rights issues and violations in Spain, Argentina, Peru, Columbia, and Mexico. This is a preview of an exhibit that will be traveling to Bogota, Columbia. The works in this exhibit reflect the experiences of these activists.
Documentary on Esther Winthrop, Greek Holocaust Survivor: Esther Winthrop, a Greek Holocaust survivor, collaborated with the Voice to Vision team to make a work of art concerning her experiences. A documentary film was made concerning this process. This film will premiere at the Vine gallery along with the collaborative artwork.
