Verve

 

In 2013, Fusion Arts worked with textile artist Anne-Marie Cadman to create a series of panels for a large community workshop tent as part of VERVE, a major £1.6 million project at the Pitt Rivers Museum funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.  Anne-Marie worked with participants from Crisis Skylight, My-Life My Choice, Artscape, and Banbury Young Homeless Project using exciting and colourful layering and printing techniques to create images inspired by the Museum’s collections and architecture.

 

The community workshop tent will tour with the Museum on all their future outreach activity.

The major project took place between 2012-2017 and aimed to deepen understanding of the Museum’s displays, reach out to a wider and more diverse audience, exploit under-visited areas of the Museum, improve visibility, and address conservation risks.
