Join us to view the exhibition of this interesting project, which some of Hikmat users have been part of.

Free public exhibition of Heritage Lottery Funded community project ‘Exploring Changing Fashion Across Cultures’. The exhibition will feature handcrafted wall-hangings telling tales of fashion heritage from all over the world. These will be displayed with information and photography documenting the project.

This exhibition is the culmination of a larger project, which has involved a fascinating ‘conversation’ between Devon’s rich heritage costume collections, and group-members’ stories and experiences of clothing in other parts of the world. Through a series of visits and workshops, the group have explored how and why fashion changes over time and across continents.

Delivered by Devon Grapevine and Olive Tree, in partnership with Hikmat Devon and Refugee Support Devon.
