In Solidarity - The Migration Blanket
ARTconnects and Salma Zulfiqar
A ten-minute film featuring 100+ artworks from refugee and migrant girls and women from more than 25 nations, and international award-winning artist and human rights activist Salma Zulfiqar. Building on the original Migration Blanket artwork, created with women in Birmingham and recognising the West Midlands as the heart of sanctuary in the UK for women and girls fleeing violence in search of safety, the film is a call for solidarity, compassion, tolerance, peace and protection of women and girls on the move - particularly those making dangerous journeys to Europe.
Supported by the Arts Council UK, The United Nations, and the Midlands Arts Centre.
On display at The Belgrade Theatre, Coventry. Located on the balcony above the box office - The Gallery Space from 15 June.
