About

Featuring botanical plant sketches, embroidery and photography, along with natural pigment exploration and plant inks, Power of Place: Earth, Gather, Form reflects young peoples' personal experiences and stories from two very different locations, St Catherine in Sinai, Egypt, and Colchester, Essex.

Within this space, YAK and Motanafas explore visual storytelling and nature journaling, offering glimpses into personal reflections, cross-cultural experiences, histories, and stories. This cross-cultural exhibition prompts us to ask questions about preserving traditional land knowledge.

The exhibition is co-curated by Lora Aziz, Motanafas Collective, Rehab Eldalil, YAK, Firstsite's Young Art Kommunity, and programme team staff members.
