part & parcel

Part and Parcel
Venue: The Tetley, Leeds
Date: Saturday 24th May 2014
Time: 12-4pm
Free event, just drop in...

In commemoration of the life of Nelson Mandela, artists Anne-Marie Atkinson and Clare McCormack invite members of the public to engage in conversations about the right to protest and speak out about what you believe. Take part in a shared creative opportunity to produce postcards, letters and artworks that will bring colour, light and hope into the cells of prisoners of conscience around the world.

Nelson Mandela spent 27 years of his life in prison for his part in the struggle against apartheid. Many people around the world continue to be imprisoned for their political beliefs, or for protesting against injustice.

Part and Parcel invites you to learn about political prisoners, some far away and some much closer to home, and create a piece of artwork to send them. This simple act shows solidarity with people imprisoned for their beliefs, connects them to a wider community and acts as a reminder that they are not alone in striving for a better world.

All are welcome. We will provide a variety of materials, as well as templates for those who’d like help to get started.

We look forward to welcoming you.
