[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OKiRbrLPgw8?list=UUJ7gYHuTyKF0FPvyRpD_hxw]From Thursday 9th May to Saturday 1st June there will be over 700 Craftivist Jigsaw pieces on display as an installation at The Ulster Hall, Linenhall Street, Belfast. Check out the Facebook event for more info.
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.
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!:)
If 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)
