AccessArt - The Village Project

12th September - 22nd October

The AccessArt Village is a participatory project run by AccessArt, a UK education charity which supports and inspires teaching and learning in the visual arts. The project was supported by Appletons Wools and aimed to inspire individuals of all ages and abilities to contribute a sewn drawing of their home towards a larger, co-created, collaborative artwork. 

The resulting installation of over 700 3D models juxtaposes work by children at the start of their creative lives next to that of accomplished artists and older generations. Whilst highlighting the character and individuality of each piece, the project celebrates the diversity of our audience and reminds us of the universal sanctity of "home".

The exhibition will be touring the UK. Find out more at www.accessart.org.uk/accessartvillage
