The Quipu Project comes to Aber

Quipu is a phone line for listening to and sharing stories about the sterilisation campaign that took place in the 1990s in Peru. Karen Tucker and Matthew Brown, academic consultants on the project from Bristol University, came to Aberystwyth for a PPi workshop on the project this week. The project makes unique use of mobile phones and radio to reach people in remote areas and enable their stories to be heard. The workshop investigated the aesthetics of the project, the funding which enabled it to happen and the collaborative working with interactive documentary makers. The workshop included clips from The Guardian documentary about the project, directed by Maria I. Court and Rosemarie Lerner.
