Atida’s ‘Stories to live’ traveling exhibition still in the final stretch

Andorra la VellaThe itinerant exhibition ‘Stories to live’, promoted by the Association of Transplants and Donors of Andorra (Atida), is still in the final stretch at its stop at the communal library of Sant Julià de Lòria. This is a sample of the photographer and nurse, Chiqui Novis, who wants to encourage reflection on organ donation. Thus, the images show the experience of organ donation and transplantation from an intimate and personal point of view.

It is made up of eleven photographs that invite you to reflect on the generous gesture of donation and the opportunity of life. To do this, the project has had the altruistic collaboration of the artist herself and of people from the Principality who have received a transplant thanks to the solidarity of living donors or donors and their families in their last wishes. This is the case of Céline De Barros, who at just 27 years old has received three kidney and one liver transplants.

This exhibition is one more of the projects promoted by the ATIDA Association, which not only works to support people who have been transplanted or are in the process of being transplanted, as well as their relatives and donors, but also to raise awareness to the Andorran population about the need to embark on the path towards a healthcare system that allows organ and tissue donations in order to improve the quality of life of the affected people and, in some cases, save lives.

After being inaugurated at the Carmen Thyssen museum and passing, among others, the Massana Tourism Office, the Palau de Gel de Canillo, the -1 floor of the hospital Nostra Senyora de Meritxell, the Cultural Center la Llacuna d ‘Andorra la Vella, the Prat del Roure d’Escaldes-Engordany, the exhibition hall of the commune of Encamp or the socio-cultural building L’Estudi d’Ordino, the exhibition now lands in Sant Julià de Lòria and will be visit until March 19. Subsequently, the photographs will conclude their tour of the country visiting the Escades-Engordany Art Center, from April 4 to 29, and the Ministry of Culture, located in the Rosaleda d’Encamp hotel, between the 8 and on May 19.
