THREADS AND STITCHES OF OUR CHANGING LANDSCAPE
1 July – 21 October
From airfields to cultivation, turf cutting to wind turbines, prehistoric farmers to 19th century industry, the wider Binevenagh area has witnessed extensive land-use change throughout history. This exhibition will explore how land use change has impacted the environment and introduce some of the work being done by the Binevenagh and Coastal Lowland Landscape Partnership Scheme to help restore environmental balance. In partnership with Causeway Coast and Glens Museum Service, the exhibition will include objects and artefacts as well as a selection of textiles curated by Conflict Textiles which reflect the environmental and land pressures which face communities around the world.
Alongside the exhibition, we will be running workshops to guide local groups in creating their own textile pieces which reflect the local environmental concern they feel most strongly about. If you are interested in participating, please contact email@example.com
This project is funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
