Rebecca, our Education Development Officer, headed off to Europe this morning, to be part of an EU Project called 'WEAVE' which brings together Italy, Bulgaria and The Netherlands to explore an interesting textile art project. Here Rebecca tells us a little bit about the project, Imaginosity's involvement and what she hopes to learn along the way.
" One of the best parts of my role as Education Development Manager is the chance to meet with people working in all fields of education and learning. Most of the time this involves visiting schools, museums, education centres, universities and attending conferences all around Ireland. But every now and then I get a chance to meet and exchange ideas with colleagues from further afield. This month I am delighted to have the chance to take part in an EU project called 'Weave', a project developed with the support of the Cultural Programme of the European Union. The main aim of 'Weave' is to organise a series of free public events about textile art in The Netherlands, Bulgaria and Italy entitled 'Zig-Zag - Textile, fibre and felt: it's Smart Child's Play'!
