We are the Minories Pop-Up Gallery, 18 Long Wyre Street, Colchester CO1 1LJ
The talk is part of a day of commoning through craft, which accompanies the current exhibition, We are Commoners: Creative Acts of Commoning. Share resources, ideas and learning; find creative ways to build local meaningful connections through art and crafts, and explore the reclaiming of local spaces to help our community thrive. A mix of online and in person activities including workshops, exhibition tours and talks.
The exhibition, We are Commoners: Creative Acts of Commoning, shows how shared processes, skills and values associated with creative making contribute to thriving commons neighbourhoods. This thought-provoking Craftspace national touring exhibition which highlights ‘acts of commoning’ comes to the We are the Minories’ pop-up gallery in Colchester on the final leg of its UK tour. Featuring both UK based and international artists, the exhibition reflects a commons-based shift in thinking from ‘you’re on your own’ to ‘we’re in this together.’
