Meet Alinah Azadeh, our lead artist working on Revolutionary Makers as part of WOW Hull.
Alinah Azadeh is an artist inspired in her work for Hull UK City of Culture 2017 by the pioneering, creative campaigns of the suffragettes and the growing movement of craft activism – “craftivism”.
Alinah is our lead artist on Revolutionary Makers – a project for WOW Hull taking place from 10 to 12 March at Hull City Hall, which will invite communities to celebrate the history of craft though a large-scale installation.
The installation will invite communities to celebrate the history of craft in the city, as well as discover more about Hull’s historical and unseen trailblazers, by creating thought-provoking work such as badges, brooches, sashes and more.
Keep your eye on our website for more details on how you can get involved.
We spoke to Alinah to find out more about her ideas for the project.
