 Interwoven: Kingston seeks to represent the shared and intertwined experiences of those that live, work and play in Kingston, addressing themes such as the effects of migration and culture on identity, the shared experience of creating a life in a new location and the interconnected stories of our community. Despite differences in how, when and where people have arrived in Kingston, similarities exist in their lived experience and connections can be made across generations, countries of origin and cultural backgrounds.

Through the embroidery works and supporting videos, learn about local people's family histories, memories and experiences of moving to and building lives in Kingston.

This project was made possible through a Kingston Art Grant.
