Stitching Solidarity II (September-ongoing 2020)2020
Stitching Solidarity: an invitation to form a temporary and creative community during August 2020. Creating a space for each other and ourselves. Exploring solidarity as a form of consistently showing up and sitting with strangers; counteracting the social, physical, and geographic isolations of living in the coronavirus era.
An invitation for you to take 40-minutes each day for five days as time to replenish, and to focus on an activity that brings you solace. This might be cross-stich, embroidery, knitting, drawing, creative writing… Or another activity that enables you to draw breath, reflect, and take time to consider a response rather than immediately react.
Stitching Solidarity responds to the provocation ‘Let’s Reimagine Political Solidarity’, and the instruction to: propose how political and/or social solidarity can be collaboratively performed. Stitching Solidarity participants will be invited to email Antoinette with images, pdf texts, and/or weblinks to audio or video files of their responses to the provocation and contribute to the online Reimagining Citizenship Living Archive.
