In 2016 AccessArt launched the AccessArt Village, a collaborative project which continued through 2017. The project was supported by Appletons Wool, and the aim of the project was simple: to inspire the AccessArt audience of all ages (children, teenagers and adults) to contribute a sewn drawing of their home towards a co-created artwork.
The project is now closed for submissions. We received over 700 sewn squares, from all kinds of audiences all over the world.
Artist Andrea Butler and the AccessArt team then worked to transform the sewn squares into a stunning and moving installation piece.
The AccessArt Village will be at The Old Gala House, Galashiels in the Scottish Borders in August 2018 – details here
September 2017 to November 2018: The Village will be on tour!
