Bacic, Roberta. (individual compiler)
Description
Since 2008, Roberta Bacic has curated 120 exhibitions of arpilleras, in Ireland and internationally. Over time, these exhibitions have expanded from arpilleras from Pinochet’s Chile, to include expressions of loss, protest and healing from around the world.

Roberta has identified 10 commemorative textiles from Northern Ireland which will be catalogued in Accounts of the Conflict. These 10 pieces have been selected from a much larger digital collection entitled 'Conflict Textiles' (which is available on-line).

Roberta Bacic, taught at Universidad Austral de Chile from 1973 to 1981. From 1982 she worked in Carlos Anwandter German Institute and San Mateo College both in Chile. Between 1993 and 1996, she worked for the National Corporation of Reparation and Reconciliation, the successor to the Truth Commission. During this time she also taught in Human Rights at the Catholic University, Temuco, Chile. She then moved to the United Kingdom and took up the position of Programme and Development Officer for War Resisters’ International where she worked between 1998 and 2002. She moved to Northern Ireland in 2004.
