Description: This exhibition, curated by Roberta Bacic and organised by The North West Quilting Group, co-ordinated by Marlene Milner, features arpilleras, quilts and wall hangings by local and international women.
Their intention has been to depict relevant places and spaces in the city that make it what it is within the context of Derry City's Year of Culture. In resonance with the rotating exhibitions that have been
sponsored by the VAC since 2008, textiles from all continents are included in Story Textiles From Around The world.
