MOURNING GLOBAL WARMING
Come sew for climate change awareness! This interactive project by North American artist Sarita Zaleha includes a growing collection of in-progress embroideries. At this event, everyone is invited to stitch names of devastating hurricanes and typhoons while discussing their concerns regarding climate change. This project brings craft and conversation into play with scientific research and global issues, encouraging people to attend to our environment through the quotidian practice of sewing. The collective labor of mourning becomes visible through variations in each participant’s stitching. The completed embroideries are sewn into flags for use at climate change events.

Location: Héraðsskólinn Hostel
Date and Time: Friday 26 June, 17:00-19:00
Free and open to everyone, all ages
No previous embroidery experience is necessary.
