LifeStrings is an important contribution to the WEAVE project as it is referenced in Europeana Romani Re-presentation editorial piece, and also a part of the Gypsy Maker 5 programme. The piece is currently touring Wales and being exhibited throughout the country.
Cisneros is very excited to be part of the CMCS Wall of Fame Festival to discuss the process of making the work and to reflect on its role within the CEF EU-funded WEAVE project.
