Documentary: A patchwork of ‘Strangers’

A short film has been made, chronicling the story behind the large-scale tapestry which goes on display across Norwich this week. It tells how local school children gained an insight into the lives of refugees, which they used as inspiration for their artwork.

The organisers would like to get even more people to get involved. Norwich Schools of Sanctuary would like people to design their own piece of patchwork art. The squares submitted by the public will be made into a digital print or poster.
