Torbay Library Commission Artist announced!

Libraries Unlimited is delighted to announce textile artist, Allegra Galvin, has been appointed to work creatively with communities in Brixham, Churston, Paignton and Torquay libraries. Rae Hoole, Creative Communities Producer, said "We were overwhelmed by the quality of the responses to our Artist Commision call-out. Allegra's proposal, Social Fabric, shone in its potential to engage our communities, customers and library teams in acts of co-creation that we hope will have lasting impact in Torbay."

Allegra said "I am absolutely delighted to have been appointed. Libraries are places of incredible power and possibility sitting in the heart of our communities. The process of making a quilt lends itself to the sharing of stories, and I am looking forward to working with library teams, volunteers and library users to create a shared work of art that tells our story."
