Whatever floats your boat ... awarded the Inspire Mark

On behalf of Thames Valley Contemporary Textiles and Quilt Group and Slough Museum, I applied for the Inspire Mark, the badge of the London 2012 Inspire Programme, for the 'Whatever floats your boat ... Contemporary Textiles in Slough' project.

I am now very pleased and excited to say that the project has been granted this prestigious status. Read more about it on the group blog. And at the London 2012 website for the Inspire Programme element of the Cultural Olympiad.

"Whatever floats your boat ..."

An exhibition I am co-curating at Slough Museum, summer 2011 - about whatever there is in Slough or its Museum that 'floats your boat', and gives you a source for inspiration. This project is getting exciting ... members of Thames Valley Contemporary Quilt are signing up and beginning to get their inspirations. There is lots more about it on the group blog. I am not yet sure where my ideas are going. I still can't get the bra I saw on display in the Museum out of my mind. I think I may head in this direction!
