Sewlidarity brings together survivors and supporters to create a banner of solidarity. Inspired by a creative project from Survivors’ Network’s past, where a banner was made when the organisation was created for adult survivors of sexual abuse, we want to create a modern message of solidarity through the arts.
We invite you to write/sew/embroider/cut+stick a square with your own message of love and solidarity to survivors everywhere. Each square will be sewn together to create a banner to broadcast our solidarity to the world. We will continue the project through 2019, in the hopes that our completed banner will be carried at the annual Reclaim the Night demonstration in November.
If you would like to join the project please come along to one of our stalls/events, or sew and send in a (minimum 15cm x 15cm) square with a pale purple, cream or white background
MESSAGES OF LOVE
An ongoing project, we invite you to fill in a heart with a message of love and support for survivors. These are then displayed on a noticeboard in our Drop-in for survivors to take home and keep. You can see all of the hearts so far by clicking here, and we share one each week on our instagram.
CHANGE THE CULTURE
We invite everyone to make a promise to do one thing to #ChangeTheCulture around sexual harassment and rape in our society. All of the pledges we’ve got photos of so far can be seen here. You can also find a blank to fill in with your own promise.
