Led by international artist and researcher Lucy Orta – in partnership with London College of Fashion’s Making for Change as part of The Portal Centre for Social Impact – the participants of the Traces: Stories of Migration workshops came together to share textile knowledge, follow the threads of community migration in the context of the East End rag trade, and celebrate east London’s history of clothing and textile industry.
As the culmination of a 2-year project involving over 80 residents across Newham and Tower Hamlets, the resulting exhibition at the Nunnery Gallery is collective tapestry of lived experiences and memories.
During the tour, you will have the opportunity to engage with Camilla Palestra and her curatorial practice, and gain a deeper insight into the collaborative exchange of textile knowledge, embedded into the engagement and outreach that lies at the very core of the entire Traces project.
The tour will end with Q&A, where you can put all your burning questions to Camilla herself!
