In 2016 AccessArt, a national visual arts charity launched the AccessArt Village. The aim of the project was simple: to inspire the AccessArt audience of all ages (children, teenagers and adults) to contribute to a co- created artwork by sending AccessArt a sewn drawing of their home on a 20cm piece of fabric.
The response to the project has been astounding with AccessArt receiving more than 700 sewn squares from all over the world. Artist Andrea Butler and the AccessArt team worked together to transform the sewn squares into an impressive, moving installation piece, which will be on display from September 2017 in venues across the UK.
