Who helped to make this

Build It Together is a new series of artworks by LOW PROFILE made possible thanks to funding from Arts Council England, supported by National Lottery Players. The project is supported by a series of community partners:
GROW Plymouth
Nudge Community Builders
Queer District Collective Plymouth Scrapstore
Arts University Plymouth
University of Plymouth
The Village Hub Plymouth
Take A Part Plymouth

Build It Together

At monthly Making Days, LOW PROFILE are inviting Plymouth Residents & visitors to make a series of new banners using simple patchmaking and hand-quilting techniques.

In the relaxed sessions, where participants are free to come-and-go as they like, people work together to make artworks that draw on histories of radical quilting, union banner making & protest. Our collective conversations (while making) focus on celebrating the power of coming together to achieve change through community building, group effort & collective action.
