Fabric of Our Lives is an immersive photography, textile and audio story exhibition based on the collaborative workshops and stories of local and refugee women living in UK textile and industrial towns including; Bolton, Wakefield, Manchester, Sheffield as well as the Migration Museum, London and a Refugee Women’s Safe House in Calais. 135 women participated in the workshops which took place during the 2019 UK tour of award winning play, THREE MOTHERS, as a way of reaching well beyond traditional theatre audiences and bringing women together under the themes of “HOME, WOMEN MOVING FORWARD, FABRIC and FORCED MIGRATION.”

Created by artists Matilda Velevitch and Sol Aizcorbe.

The exhibition will be online throughout Migration Matters – see below.
