China here we come!
Recently the Fate, Destiny and Self Determination international tapestry installation was invited to China to be exhibited in Shenzhen in September 2016. Monique Lehman, herself a very prolific and talented tapestry weaver and textile artist and designer (https://www.surfacedesign.org/users/monique-lehman) helped to make this happen. If you would like to contribute to the continuously expanding installation and would like to know more about it contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. In the meantime, a Go Fund Me campaign is underway to collect money to pay for the expenses of sending the exhibition around the world: China is certain but we have had invitations from Poland, UK, Australia, Germany, France, however, we must pay the expenses. You can go to this link if you would like to donate money to this initiative.
In the meantime, the installation is off to Granville Island to be exhibited at the Craft Council of British Columbia. March 24 - May 5 2016. For more details go here: http://linedufourevents.blogspot.ca/2016/02/craft-council-of-british-columbia.html
