After two months squirrelling away in the studio I have now completed all 50 textile portraits of the 50 people who took part in my IWDA #fiftyfiftyproject by donating $50 or more directly to the International Women’s Development Agency.
Thought this project, thanks to the generosity of all those who participated, we raised $2,790 for IWDA! These much needed funds will go directly towards supporting IWDA’s work improving the rights of women across the Asia Pacific region.
Before I mail all 50 portraits off as a gift to the participants who donated to IWDA as part of this project, I will have a one-night-only showing of all 50 portraits. This exhibition, which will happen on Friday 11 March between 6pm-8pm, is being proudly hosted by Igniting Change at their office space on Carlisle Street, Balaclava. A representative from IWDA will be attending the event and will share with us in more detail some of the work of IWDA. If you’re in Melbourne and would like to attend please see the invitation below for more details.
I look forward to seeing you there! However, if you can’t make it you can still see all 50 portraits as well as images from the night on my Instagram and Twitter accounts – @talfitzpatrick
