A dance performance is set to mark the official opening of a very special exhibition at Roe Valley Arts and Cultural Centre in Limavady.
‘Embracing Human Rights: Conflict Textiles’ Journey’ is running in partnership with Causeway Coast and Glens Museum Services and the War-Torn Children and Conflict Textiles organisations.
The show invites you to explore human rights through the tactile medium of textiles – how they are made, what they mean and the impact they can have. It includes quilts and arpilleras from around the world, created in different decades which prompt the viewer to reflect on the impact of, and response to, human rights violations.
The official launch of the exhibition takes place on Saturday 7th March at 2pm with a performance from The Body Wisdom Group of Echo Echo Dance Theatre Company accompanied by Chilean musician Victor Henriquez. Everyone is welcome and refreshments will be served.
The exhibition continues until April 12th and the centre is keen to welcome visits from schools and colleges. Tours and talks can be accommodated on request.
This is the latest collaboration between Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council and Conflict Textiles who have been working together since 2010.
