Lightseekers and their installation ‘Moksha’ (liberation) will be at Quetzal Stories of Change Exhibition, starting on 18th September 2021.
Lightseekers has been an ongoing supporter of the Breaking the Silence Initiative. They invited Quetzal to deliver a session as part of their 9 session online programme Ways to Wellbeing. They also introduced Quetzal to the University of Leicester and their installation Let’s Talk about Sexual Violence which will also feature at the exhibition.
Quetzal is ever so grateful for Lightseekers contribution and we look forward to seeing the installation ‘Moksha’ liberation.
Founded in 2008, Lightseekers is a community arts organisation. Using visual art and storytelling as a platform to engage with complex social issues, we predominantly work in spaces where creative engagement is low. Our projects initiate participation from those most likely to experience social exclusion and discrimination. We aim to encourage intergenerational, cross-cultural dialogues between disparate communities while creating space for silenced narratives.
- Encouraging creative storytelling from under/misrepresented communities.
- Facilitating better access to professional creative opportunities.
- Fostering relations between institutions and their communities.
