    Story

    I am a Mother, Grandmother, Great Grandmother, an Artivist & initiator of Grenfell Memorial Quilt.

    GMQ community fabric art project started 5 years ago.

    GMQ will be the size of the dimensions of Grenfell Tower 220ft x 72ft .
    To memorialise & celebrate those 72 lives lost in Grenfell Tower. GMQ Community Projects chief aim is to provide an outlet for the emotions of those affected by the Grenfell Tower tragedy, to create a sense of community & support resulting in a life-affirming, humane tribute: a counterpoint to the callous, inhumane motives which resulted in the unjust deaths 72 people.
    GMQ is also a reminder. A call to action regarding building materials regulations. Although new regulations were put into place many years prior to the fire, the use of such dangerous perilous materials continue.

      We're @Norfolk Makers Festival exhibiting in St. Peter Mancroft Church. The Quilts look absolutely wonderful in this sacred space. Many have written, sewn & embroidered dedication messages on hearts, with lots of loving care & support. "A beautiful authentic response to a catastrophe that befell families & the community of North Kensington. Unlike so many, this project quietly got on with it without turning a heartfelt response into a cashmachine. A beautiful homage of love in every stitch." GrenfellNextOfKin @grenfellnextkin #support
