Cultural Fabric. Wed 10th August 10.30am – 12pm.

 

I’ll be leading a conversation at The New Walk Museum, drawing on the subject of Syrian Artist, Mohamad Khayata‘s tapestry project ‘Stitching My Syria Back’. The series represents Mohamad’s desire to reunite and ‘stitch’ back together with hopes of one day returning home. Unfortunately, Mohamad will┬ánot join us, since he is being denied a travel┬ávisa.

 

This is an informal event during which we will also be discussing our recent Lightseekers project ‘Connecting Cultures’, in which we worked with 103 schoolchildren across two ethnically diverse schools. The outcomes for this project were three large tapestries and a book.

 

Joining us in this discussion is Hema Parmar, who assisted with the ‘Connecting Cultures’ and is now project managing our latest project ‘Woven Stories’.
