Human Flow / by Lucy

Thank you everyone who came down last night and showed support at the Stirchley Community Market.  We raised a fair amount but shall now put the prints in the online shop and continue collecting for the Help Refugees and the Human Flow fund.

I watched Ai Weiwei's film 'Human Flow' the night before I was selling at the market. I couldn't comfortably sell without contributing something to this ongoing situation in the world. I decided to sell off my linocut's I made earlier in this year* and donate all profits. It's a small step but a start.

*At the beginning of the year I made a series of linocuts 'There Are Voices To Be Heard', based on drawings responding to the daily reports of the refugee crisis. Since then Brexit seems to have muffled over much of those reports. But with 65.6 million people forcibly displaced this is still a massive and vast issue.
