The coat of hopes is coming to Worthing!

Free public event on Monday 16th May 6.30pm to 8pm at Coast Café BN11 2FG.
All welcome to come and hear the story of the beautiful coat.

Barbara Keal, the artist behind the coat of hopes says:
'The ‘coat of hopes’ is a patchwork coat made by hundreds of people and worn by hundreds of people on a 900km walk/pilgrimage from Newhaven to COP26 the UN Climate Summit in Glasgow. Each patch is a piece of blanket into which has been sewn the griefs, remembrances, prayers and hopes of an individual or group for their local landscape in the face of climate breakdown. The coat is accompanied by a song which is traditionally sung whenever a new person puts it on. When the coat is put on it invites the wearer to feel its weight and warmth and to step briefly into being the protagonist in the climate breakdown story, it may also invite the wearer to speak their own griefs, remembrances, prayers or hopes for their own local area.'
