Arts Derbyshire



We have been working in partnership with Rosie Jones; the Derby city ambassador who is based at the twinning office in Osnabruck. Derby residents have been invited to contribute to a Peace project, making textile squares that will be displayed in Osnabruck this summer. The final outcome will also be displayed in Derby for Peace Week in September. The squares can be made of any textile and must depict something that makes you happy. We encourage all to make textile squares in any material or style that can be dropped off at the Artcore community hub by the end of April. These will then be sent to Osnabruck and combined with other squares made by the communities of Osnabruck’s other partnership cities all over the world. Our regular participants in the Sew and Socialise and Knit and Natter classes, have also been making textile squares. Our participants at the Art of Healing community sessions also created postcards that have been sent to the Anglo-German group in Osnabruck as part of a postcard exchange.
