EWMI is working with the Kosovo Women’s Network (KWN) to support the Kosovo Oral History Initiative, a collective of women of different generations, nationalities and competences, whose mission is to record life stories. Working in partnership with The New School, KWN is collecting the life stories of women, whose part in war and peace times has been most often sidelined, if not forgotten. The initiative goes beyond the narratives of victimization and war stories to recover the whole life experience of diverse individuals and is building an archive of life-history interviews and short films for wider audiences. The interviews, filmed and transcribed in Albanian, English, and Serbian, are collected and presented on a new website: "Oral History Kosovo".
EWMI is accepting donations on behalf of KWN to support their initiative. All tax deductible donations for this project will be sent directly to our partner in Kosovo. EWMI does not retain any overhead on these donations.
