The Big Draw 2020: A Climate of Change Exhibition
Jess Kemp
Beeston Library, Notts
Sat 17 Oct
Thu 17 Dec
The Miner2Major Festival Bunting and The Big Draw Exhibition. Inspire: Culture, Learning and Libraries is a proud delivery partner on a Landscape Partnership scheme called Miner2Major. The scheme, supported by a grant from the National Lottery Heritage Fund, encourages local communities to get involved in projects that celebrate the diverse wildlife, important habitats and rich heritage of Sherwood Forest.

This year, groups across the Miner2Major area have joined in with The Big Draw 2020: A Climate of Change by virtually working with textile artist Jess Kemp to collectively create metres of silk painted festival bunting. Every flag we have received is a hand painted artwork from the community exploring the 8 themes of the Miner2Major scheme:

  • Better Habitats
  • Saving Sherwood’s Special Species
  • Sherwood’s Landscape of Trees and Hedges
  • Connecting Trails
  • The Veiled Landscape
  • Heritage Buildings
  • Century of Change
  • People of Sherwood
The bunting triangles are now on display at Inspire library galleries and will go on to appear at Miner2Major festivals and events from summer 2021 onwards (NB: Please check library opening times before visiting, unfortunately libraries are also not able to offer any refreshments at this time):

Inspire would like to thank everyone who has taken part so far and look forward to adding even more bunting flags to the exhibition over the coming months.
