Every day, all day Friday 9 October to Sunday 18 October

Borne out of university and school closures during the COVID-19 crisis, the Corona Quilt is a community craft project at the National Art School, initiated by second-year students Rani Matthews and Anna Mould. 

The Corona Quilt is a material platform for making meaning and building connections at a time where we have shifted our communication to digital.

Students, staff and alumni of the National Art School are participating in a virtual quilting bee, making quilt squares that respond to the health, economic and social crises caused by the pandemic. The squares will be sewn together and displayed at the National Art School, accompanied by a live-streamed Art Forum on quilt-making as a historically rich, tactile language of form used to document everyday experience, commemorate significant personal and public events, and raise awareness of topical political issues.
