Centro Cultural La Moneda extends an invitation to explore Borderland Threads, an exhibition rooted in the ethnographic and collaborative study developed by the British geographer Megan Ryburn together with a multidisciplinary team made up of Daniela Cobos, doctor in Didactics of Arts and textile artist; Alice Volpi, designer, animator and illustrator, and Claudia Montoya, cultural manager and textile artist.

Through the textile art of arpilleras, this exhibition presents us the stories of different Colombian immigrant women in Antofagasta, who tell us about their landscapes, stories and memories, mapping silenced narratives of their lives with scraps of fabric.

This research and exhibition is possible thanks to the support of the British Academy, London School of Economics, Servicio Nacional de Patrimonio Cultural del Ministerio de las Culturas, las Artes y el Patrimonio and Universidad de Chile, by means of the Instituto de Estudios Internacionales, the Vicerrectoría de Extensión y Comunicaciones and Facultad de Filosofía y Humanidades.

Research/curatorial team


  • Megan Ryburn | Human geographer specialized in migrations, researcher, lecturer and author. She is currently an assistant professor at Instituto de Estudios Internacionales of Universidad de Chile. She works with decolonial, feminist and creative methodologies to promote the protagonism of research participants when telling their stories.

Between 2015 and 2022 she served as lecturer and researcher at the London School of Economics, an institution that sponsors her postdoctoral fellowship at the British Academy. In 2018 she published the book Uncertain citizenship: Everyday practice of Bolivian migrants in Chile together with University of California Press.


  • Daniela Cobos | Textile artist and visual arts teacher. She holds a master’s degree in Theory and History of Art, a doctorate in Art Didactics and is also a doctor in Philosophy and Aesthetics. She is currently an academic in the teacher training programs at Universidad de Chile. She works researching, disseminating and facilitating access to artistic learning from participatory and situated methodologies, intended to approach the school curriculum from a decolonized and transdisciplinary stand point.

Among her latest works, she has studied the state of artistic education in the formal and non-formal educational system of the Libertador General Bernardo O’Higgins region.

  • Alice Volpi | Graphic designer, illustrator, scriptwriter and 2D animator. She has worked with various non-governmental organizations focused on human and environmental rights, such as: Instituto Nacional de Derechos Humanos, Organización Panamericana de Salud, APROFA, ONU Muheres Brasil, CEPAL, among others, interpreting the needs of each one to produce clear attractive and easy to understand graphic works, according to the target audience. In addition, she has worked on educational animated series for television and YouTube. Among them are Tecnociencia, CocinaLab, El Cosmos del Profe Maza and Villafresca.
  • Claudia Montoya | Graduate in social work, cultural manager, arpillerista, knitter and textile artist.

Her creative training is autonomous thanks to family heritage from the textile trade. She has worked from social and territorial perspectives with participatory methodologies of wellbeing, generating instances of rapprochement, self-care and communication in other textile languages.

Between 2017 and 2022, she held popular and self-managed training workshops for caregivers of people with disabilities (PeSD), immigrant women from the Los Arenales settlement, students from Universidad Católica del Norte, among other spaces.
