The patterns and materials used by @AFWhitworth for their message for #BLM reminds me of the paintings by @ibrahim_mahama in his exhibition Parliament of Ghosts for @MIFestival. The Cloth used has been passed down through families and is filled with aspirations and history - Dom https://t.co/n2YHWCfJIL

Our @AFWhitworth Handmade group continue to digitally get together every Friday to learn, create & socialise. Last week they made cardboard letters & had a discussion around #BLM. It’s a reminder that age is no barrier to having the conversations that are important to us all. https://t.co/kbQFOVN7BB
