Marilyn Garson
Marilyn came to the Hokianga in 1987, from Canada. She worked as a weaver, and did her share of days in the old Waipoua Co-op shop. From 1998 - 2015, she worked with communities affected by war, including Cambodian former child combatants (1998 - 2001), Afghan homebound women (2005 - 2010), and Gazan Palestinians (2011 - 2015). She left a trail of locally-owned social enterprises to create jobs, and picked through any number of fabric traders' shops ...

Through a dozen or so fabrics, Marilyn will tell the story of Eighteen Years, Several Wars (That I Could Not End), and Serial Social Enterprise.
