Invitation to take part in 'Fair Trade - Material Matters'
Fair Trade Material Matters is a project coming to Cambridge, Soham and Littleport later this year. It will include workshops, exhibitions and conversations about identity and sustainable art practice.
Dates are provisional, currently September 29th - October 1st in Cambridge. October 13th - 16th in Soham and October 20th - 23rd in Littleport.
I would love to include some of the amazing COS artists in 'Fair Trade - Material Matters'. I am inviting people to draw their self-portraits, on-site at one of the locations selected, community groups and organisations will also be involved. Everyone will keep their original drawing, I will use carbon copies as reference for stitching onto recycled blankets. All copies will also be part of an 'online quilt', extending the artist community.
The project is currently applying for funding, if this sounds like something you are interested in please contact me and I will provide more details.
