Threads of Identity

 

  

  

This project challenges stereo types surrounding stitch-based ways of working with a group of 15 boys at Burnage Academy in Manchester. It is one in a series of initiatives to acknowledge the thirtieth anniversary of the death of Ahmed Iqbal Ullah, who died in a racially motivated crime when a pupil at Burnage.

The finished cloth is on display in the school, where-as the short film by Mary Stark documenting the project enables the work to be shared by a wide audience. The work was funded by the HEFCE National Networks for Collaborative Outreach (NNCO) and was supported by the Ahmed Iqbal Ullah Educational Trust based in Manchester Central Library.

The film featured at the Textiles and Place conference at Manchester School of Art in April 2018 and also in the Making Suburban Faith conference at UCL in September 2017.
