The Invitation


 

  • Is there someone, something, or somewhere you know and love that’s endangered by environmental breakdown? 

  • How does your lifestyle contribute to that endangerment? 

  • What could you do to help reduce that endangerment? What are you doing? 

We invite you to explore these questions creatively. If you wish, you can make a textile panel of 30x30cm (plus borders) to illustrate your answer to one of these queries, and write a few words about your response to some or all of them. This can be a good way to reflect more deeply on these issues. Here are some suggestions. 

You can do this on your own, or you can join events that we’re running. Free online workshops help people get started and online chats for panel-makers provide opportunities to discuss issues raised – whether about making the panels, concerns about sustainability and climate justice, or what we can do. Other courses and workshops are also available, and you are welcome to set up your own; reach out if you need help with this. 

Send us your panel along with your written response to join our travelling exhibition and for display on our gallery page. 

Over 400 panels have already been sent in, and we’re making plans for future exhibitions, pandemic allowing. If you’d like to host a large display, you’re welcome to get in touch. Upcoming exhibitions are listed on our events page.
