Museo de la Palabra y la Imagen

The Museo de la Palabra y la Imagen (MUPI) is a civilian initiative founded in 1996 and dedicated to the research, recovery, preservation, and dissemination of the historical and cultural heritage of El Salvador. Its educational program promotes activities related to historical memory, human rights, and the culture of peace, creating spaces for reflection on the problems facing Salvadoran society. The HRDI partnered with MUPI beginning in 2009 to provide access to two audiovisual collections, the Radio Venceremos collection and Tejiendo la Memoria.


Radio Venceremos

Radio Venceremos was a clandestine radio station that broadcast from the mountains of Morazán, El Salvador during the Salvadoran Civil War (1981-1992). The recordings contain valuable historic, anthropologic and ethnographic information, particularly in regards to human rights violations during an era of social transformation in Central America.

Tejiendo la Memoria

Tejiendo la Memoria ("Weaving Memory") was a weekly radio program produced by MUPI. Each program is between five and seven minutes and relates an aspect of the social, cultural, or political history of El Salvador. The program was broadcast by the Association of Participatory Radio and Programs of El Salvador (ARPAS).
