    Loving Earth - Healing Through Creativity, has involved the Loving Earth Project and a local refugee support group of volunteers and women and children from Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan who are resettling in Richmondshire.

    The project has been led by community textile artist, Kathryn Guy. 

    A community textile project is a central part of involvement in the Loving Earth Project as the process of making a textile panel creates space for reflection and opportunities for conversations and development of skills.

    Over the past year, Kathryn has delivered textile workshops to local women and children resettled in the area, where all have engaged successfully with the themes of the Loving Earth Project. These have produced many wonderful examples of creative upcycling.

    The work of the group will be exhibited along with a selection of textile panels on loan from the Loving Earth National Project Archive. 

    As well as showcasing the work of the project, the exhibition will also include an artistically curated journey from beginning to end, demonstrating face to face textile workshops with their specialist tutor, Kathryn.

    There will be visual graphics of workshops, participants enjoying time in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, meeting crafters in the local community, sharing and developing new skills and supporting mental health and wellbeing.

    The project has been made possible through NYCC Resettlement and Stronger Communities funding.

    Loving Earth panels will be on display in Sacramento, California and elsewhere in the USA in Spring 2023.

    Panels will be at Sacramento's Museum of Science and Curiosity for the whole month. This is a wonderful new venue with interactive exhibits for children of all ages. They have about 600 visitors a day. The panels will hang in the main corridor leading to their nature & environment wing.

    • Smaller exhibits will also be on display on weekends in Sacramento at a Catholic parish, Sacramento Meetinghouse, and a Unitarian church.
    • The Atrium Art Cafe in Old Sacramento will have panels exhibited for the week leading up to Earth Day. This is a storefront that hosts exhibits and also invites people come in and create artwork. We plan to provide supplies for people to draw paper panels using the three LEP questions.
