participatory practice, workshop, textiles, performance, sound, booklet, instruments
In collaboration with Therese Westin
Singing Blankets is a collaborative art project with refugees and asylum seekers in the UK and Greece situated around the notion of individual and collective action and creation through the use of sewing and sound exploration. During the workshops Amanda and Therese also share a range of relaxation techniques including meditation and yoga, tending to the entire holistic body of each participants as well as the group as a whole, in order to best facilitate a flow state for creative action to take place.
