Prison of Sesuntepeque and Jucuapa organize exhibition
The women of the workshops on techniques of drawing and painting in the prison of Sesuntepeque had a successful exhibition in fall 2009. During two weeks, all final results of the workshops were shown on a great wall inside the prison. They addressed topics such as peace, love, hope, freedom, friendship and family. A few weeks after, Quetzalcoatl took the chance to also exhibit their work in another prison; the penitentiary centre of Jucuapa.
The opening was organized by the participants of the workshops in cooperation with the management of the prison and Quetzalcoatl. Friends and family members visited the opening and a journalist of Diario Co-Latino was also present. Participants were enabled to explain their work and other inmates performed additional acts. At the end, all participants received diplomas for their attendance to the workshops and artistic skills. The pictures below were taken at the opening. The last picture shows the hands of the women, as a way of saying thanks to the teacher Roberto Melara and to Quetzalcoatl.
