Art Refuge: The Coronaquilt

This project is not a textile quilt – but an idea, connection and virtual gallery. Art Refuge uses art and art therapy to support the mental health and well-being of people displaced due to conflict, persecution and poverty, both in the UK and internationally. In mid-March 2020 they launched this project – encouraging and celebrating ‘Rituals of the Everyday.’ People from around the world are sharing photos to an instagram feed that is making a virtual quilt online. Some are making actual patches and photographing them. Others are recording their rituals.
