The event marked the opening of the exhibition which will be on view until 17 September 2023 on the curved wall, 4th floor of the BACC. The showcase will encompass more than 30 bodymaps produced during a therapeutic art program with conflict-affected communities in the Southern part of Thailand. The exhibition aimed to raise awareness about the importance of healing for all those who have suffered psychological impacts from violence, and to foster participation among networks in order to develop a support system. It also raised awareness of the importance of effective legal and institutional frameworks for implementing fundamental human rights principles such as torture prevention and prohibition to enable a fair and effective justice system.
The exhibition was launched with a panel discussion on 5 September 2023, 5:00-6:30 pm at SEA Junction (4th Floor, Bangkok Art and Culture Center)
