A Collage of Care

Marwa Al-Sabouni
Sat 7 - Sun 29 May 2022

Our Festival Guest Co-Director invites you to participate in the large scale plant exchange by bringing a plant to Brighton Dome.

"Almost all of us, at a certain point of our lives, have planted a seed in the belly of a pot and waited patiently to see it sprout, grow, and eventually bloom. This simple experience which we may have been introduced as a school assignment or even a retirement hobby, gives us more than just a beautiful thing to look at. It embodies the patience for the result, the trust in the unknown, the perseverance of the trail, and the care for another soul. It involves skill and love, and the result is something beautiful, fruitful, and rewarding. 

That's why the pot may not just carry a plant, it may well carry a piece of each one of us. In our festival, we will be honoured and humbled to place these pieces of you on display in and around Brighton. It will be an exhibition of beauty and love, but more importantly a collage of care."

- Marwa Al-Sabouni

As well as plants, we are also looking for a group of budding volunteers to tend the plants on a weekly basis. If you would like to find out more about how to participate in this special nurturing project conceived by Marwa, please contact Ina: [javascript protected email address]
