Threads: Weaving Humanity

Threads: Weaving Humanity

This activity has finished and is no longer running.

Join us for our annual Art on the Grounds Festival, celebrating a series of new textile works throughout our historic gardens and grounds by a group of emerging international artists. These newly commissioned works use braiding, stitching, patching, and mending as a metaphor for weaving the threads of our diverse communities into a shared social fabric.

Highly sensitive to the elements, fiber works are traditionally displayed inside carefully controlled environments of galleries and museums. Serving as an analogy for our human vulnerabilities, Threads: Weaving Humanity places these works outdoors where we can appreciate and witness the fragility and the resilience of the materials as they interact with the natural surroundings. Many of the works on view will be created in collaboration with the local community and offer opportunities for conversation about connecting through our shared humanity, including practicing kindness, compassion, integrity, respect, empathy, forgiveness, and self-reflection.
