I did another big project called “Coat Tales” and I asked people to donate people coats to people in need in London but I also asked them to write a tale or story of that coat.
So it wasn’t just donating a coat to a charity in a regular way, they were writing the person that they would’ve thought that’d get it, with a story of the tale of the coat. That was really beautiful.
The thing you have to do is try to be courageous and be that yourself. Whatever change you want to see, you have to do it yourself.
The garment on the wall has been given to Bernadette Russell by a friend, it is a very old piece and has it’s stories too. We met the artist, performer and writer at one of the White Rabbit shows in London.
