COLLATERAL DAMAGE  

News 1 Comment

This community textile project commemorates victims of wars in the century since World War One by inviting anyone to make unique textile poppies in honour of particular victims. About 50 Quaker groups and many other people made around 4,000 poppies for a  mass installation  at Friends House which is on show until 21 December . Poppies and labels can continue to be added to the Friends House display, and a printable flyer including suggestions for poppy making is here.

There’s a short video about the project which can also be shared via on the project’s Facebook page has lots photos both of this and of displays and events elsewhere.   Postcards are on sale at the Quaker Centre and by mail order from Peace Pledge Union.

It may be possible to exhibit the display elsewhere in the new year . If you know a venue that would be interested, please put them in touch directly with  collateraldamage@gmail.com.  

In the summer, the poppies will be divided up.  If you would like some, to make up into a wreath or for some other purpose, please get in touch with the project.

    Poppies from the Collateral Damage project are now available for anyone who would like to use them to publicise the DSEI Arms Fair, or Art the Arms Fair 2019 in early September, by making mini-banners.
    Or you might like to make a white poppy wreath for local use.
    Contact collateraldamage@gmail.com direct if you’d like some.
