The artists

—And here are images from a 3 day workshop with students from Sisatannak High School, in Vientiane.

UXO Education – these were in response the question of how to avoid UXO accidents.

UXO Survivors – these portraits are beautiful and some are very sad.  When I spoke to students about who they were, many mentioned relatives.

Ideal World – the assignment was for them to imagine what their ideal Laos would look like without UXO.  They had such varied images, from urban to rural, from family to cars.

War – these images were in response to the question: where do UXO come from?  They look amazingly similar to work that you can see at Legacies of War – drawings from refugees from the Plain of Jars during the war.

Past, present, future – these are students depictions of their past, presents, and futures.  I see a lot of ambivalence!

The students – here are pictures of the students themselves!  On the last day a lot of students came and borrowed their friends books so they could be photographed as well…
