November 11 is a memorial day to honour the war dead following the signing of the Armistice that ended World War I. In alignment, PCU alumnae, Thais Duarte and Monica Mills, have organised RAPTA TERRA, an artistic initiative that seeks to highlight the very real issue of violent war crimes against women, with the goal to bring it to the front line of global discussion.
Over three days, visitors can view performances and installations, watch a documentary, attend a workshop and a panel discussion that will all examine and discuss the mistreatment of women during war.
