Livstycket at Nordiska Museum

One of my favourite exhibitions, and the most memorable, was an exhibition by Livstycket at the Nordiska museum in Stockholm.

Livstycket is a non-profit organisation that seeks to integrate immigrants to Sweden into the local life and equip them with the skills to work.

The tag-line for the organisation is: 'If you educate women, you educate the world'. How true!

At the Nordiska museum the exhibition focused on the textile work that they had done through a series of workshops. The images and colours blew me away. I could have stayed there all day. What follows are a few photos which do not do justice to the majestry of what was created. Check out their website for more info.
