04 Apr #imapiece Craftivist Jigsaw installation is going on tour!:)

Thanks to craftivistas across the UK the Craftivist Jigsaw project has collected more than 700 jigsaw pieces so far. The project has been exhibited in Manchester (see video below) and is now on tour. We are hoping to confirm a London gallery ASAP for April and then the next stop is already confirmed and is in …. Northern Ireland!

Northern Ireland Craftivists Lucie Corcoran & Kirsty McGuiness have been organising this installation and have been working with fellow Northern Ireland craftsters and community groups and produced over a 100 jigsaws to add to this growing installation. 

Save The Children/Craftivist Installation evening at The Peoples History Museum Manchester.The Craftivist Collective and Save The Children feel this is not a quick fix solution to hunger and encourages you to keep campaigning throughout the year. Pick up your Jigsaw kits at this exhibition and lobby your MP too. go to our #imapiece project website for all templates and guides. .

The installation consists of loose jigsaw pieces so that they can be exhibited inside any venue in a way that fits that venue. For example if there is an arched door or windows then the jigsaws can be places around them, you could have the jigsaws starting in a cluster in one corner of a room like a big splat. You can copy our valentines installation and make the jigsaws into a heart… the possibilities are endless!:) 

CCjigsaw013-101If you want to host this installation sometime in 2013 please do contact Save The Children if you’d like the exhibition to come to you! (email: campaigns AT savethechildren DOT org DOT uk)
