The Partnership Quilt

Timeframe: 2017-2018

The Partnership Quilt was made in acollaboration between Changing Lives staff, volunteers, and clients as well as Six Penny Memories (a duo of professional quilters), and academic resesarchers. It started out as an activity for women with experiences in the sex industry to work on during drop-in sessions in Northumberland. From these humble beginnings, it has turned into an interactive piece of art that functions as a living archive of sex workers’ stories and experiences of Changing Lives service delivery in the North East of England.
